AIGA Minnesota is the first place to turn for inspiration, professional development, and excellence in design in Minnesota.

Members include graphic designers, as well as professionals in allied fields such as printing, prepress, photography, illustration, paper manufacturing/distribution, and writing. AIGA Minnesota was founded in 1977 as the Minnesota Graphic Designers Association. Today, they are one of the largest AIGA chapters in the nation, serving nearly 1,300 members in Minnesota and the upper Midwest.


AIGA Minnesota supports the interests of professionals, educators and students who are engaged in the process of designing, regardless of where they are in the arc of their careers. We offer education and professional development programs, competitions, shows that promote excellence in design and opportunities for students and professionals to network. We also strive to enhance the experience of members and to position Minnesota and the upper Midwest as leaders in the field of design.
