As part of the national AIGA Design for Good initiative, AIGA Iowa partnered area creatives with non-profit organizations of the greater Des Moines area through Design Assign – an initiative to benefit the world, our country and our communities. Twelve designers of various emphases coordinated with seven area non-profits over a period of three months. The projects that have resulted – identity systems, posters, websites, social media art work, invitations, etc. -- will help raise awareness and funds for their causes.

Grand View University Art & Design students in the Interactive Design IV class collaborated with the Graphic Design V students to create a visual identity system and are redesigning and developing a full content-management system for the Children and Families Urban Ministries (CFUM) website. They are also planning a service learning project by volunteering with CFUM this semester.

6-7 p.m. Networking & social hour (light appetizers and cash bar available)
7-8 p.m. Exhibition and demonstration of Design Assign projects
8-9 p.m. Presentation by Doug Powell, founder of Design for Good & National AIGA President

We welcome all AIGA members, non-members, non-profit organizations and everyone interested in design for the greater good to join us at Jasper Winery for this great event.
