Join us for three days of in-person connection with the design community. Together, we'll get inspired and re-energized while learning from designers at the cutting edge of today's hot topics.

This year’s host is Debbie Millman! 🌟 It wouldn't be the first AIGA Design Conference in NYC without the iconic native New Yorker and AIGA Medalist bringing us her unique energy and perspective.�

🗓 October 12-14 in New York City.�

🌭 Register by May 11 for early rates.

The 2023 theme — THE VIEW FROM HERE

The branding was inspired by the connectivity of NYC and AIGA and pays homage to iconic design elements of NY transit including the street grid, street signage and of course the Vignelli subway map. Special thanks to AIGA New York board members for creating this year's branding.

He is the Design Director at MATTER, which, over the last two decades, has grown into an ambidextrous design consultancy, print shop, workshop, and retail bookstore. As Design Director, he works across all media for business, culture, and civic engagement with his partner and staff. MATTER’s broad range of clients includes restaurants, beverage manufacturers and distributors, politicians, universities, architects, engineers, arts venues, mimes, scientists, government agencies, and entrepreneurs.

Calling all creative leaders! 📢 Registration is now open for the annual live online program — Business Perspectives for Creative Leaders, starting April 27.

This executive education program, in partnership with Yale University, is designed to equip creative leaders to meet the challenges of management and give participants the skills and perspectives they need to reach the next levels in their careers. Instead of teaching management topics in separate, single-subject courses, Yale’s experienced faculty teach an integrated curriculum providing business frameworks and concepts in a rich, relevant context.
