There are two kinds of people in this world: AIGA members and… everyone else. But no matter who you are, you’re one of us. And if you’re reading this blog, you’re either a member already or you should be (really, you should think about it). Why? Sure, there are heaps of bells and whistles that come with membership (discounts with partners like Apple or at live events and online classes), and we keep it affordable with five different membership levels. But the big reason people—from students to design legends—join AIGA and keep renewing and upgrading their membership year after year is that most intangible, coveted thing: community. When you join AIGA, you become part of a tight-knit group of like-minded friends, design lovers, and practitioners who are just as passionate and ambitious as you are. Here’s what some of our members have to say:

As the largest professional association of designers in the world, AIGA is committed to advancing the value and impact of design, both locally and globally, and working together to inspire, support, and learn from each other at every stage of our careers. Together we can do amazing things—join now.
