ABOUT (RE)DESIGN

The AIGA (Re)Design Awards are a distinct design competition recognizing the importance and excellence of socially responsible and community driven work created by design professionals, students, educators, businesses and organizations from around the world. As designers, we must listen to our communities and work with and for them to create work that has impact and that creates discussion.
