Design Journeys: You Are Here

May 20–August 6, 2010

In 2005, the AIGA Task Force on Professional Diversity developed a list of recommendations for increasing diversity within the profession. Among the stated goals were to create awareness of outstanding designers from culturally and racially diverse backgrounds and create traveling shows of the work of diverse designers.

The “Design Journeys” project seeked to achieve both—by not only celebrating the lives and achievements of 25 selected practitioners, but also encouraging aspiring designers from all backgrounds to consider design as a viable and rewarding career.

The exhibit was made possible through support and contributions from: AIGA Diversity task force; TODA, exhibition and collateral design; alfalfa studio, mural and motion graphics direction; Cubanica; Innovation Printing; Tekserve; RIS Paper; Bestype.
