AIGA: the Professional Association for Design
At AIGA Charlotte, we want to build a more dynamic and creative community where area designers can participate, network and grow. To make that happen, we’re dedicated to providing education and inspiration to the creative arts community by offering a diverse schedule of programs, events and initiatives.
Founded in 2000, we’re an affiliate of AIGA, the oldest and largest membership association for professionals engaged in the discipline, practice and culture of designing. Nationally, AIGA now represents 25,000 designers through 69 national affiliates and 240 student groups.
AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.
