Emerging futures

Article Abstract:

The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) will explore the differences inherent in art and business at its Oct 1993 National Design Conference in Miami, FL. A platform of eight initiatives that speak to designer concerns was developed at an AIGA retreat in 1991. The initiatives address new technology, responsibility to the environment, professional matters, public service, design history, education, equal opportunity and internationalism. Committees were formed to study these issues and plan ongoing projects. Information about AIGA's future plans is given.

Article Abstract:
