The Las Vegas Chapter of AIGA, the professional organization for design, is committed to providing education, support, and networking to professionals and students and serves as an advocate for the ethical practice of design.

We started work on the chapter in 1996 and officially founded in 1998, we support designers and varied creative entities in the Las Vegas Valley and surrounding areas by organizing projects and events – lectures, mixers, community partnerships, social outreach, and competitions – to help inform current and future designers, as well as the broader public, about the value of design.

As part of AIGA, we share in the mission of advancing design as a professional craft, strategic tool, and vital cultural force. The membership of over 22,000 in 75 chapters believe designers serve a critical role as communicators, educators, and innovators. AIGA sets the national standard for the role of design in economic, social, political, cultural, and creative contexts. Founded in 1914 as the American Institute of Graphic Arts, AIGA remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design and is now known simply as “AIGA, the professional association for design.”
