Celebrating sustainable and socially-responsible designs, brands and stories
The AIGA (Re)design Awards is an international, sustainably-focused graphic design competition that is held every other year and rotated among the chapters of AIGA—the professional association for design. I was asked to lead the 2013 event because of my sustainable design leadership within the AIGA Minnesota chapter.
As event Chair, I researched other competitions, developed a sustainable business plan, marketing plan and budget, wrote new judging criteria based on the Living Principles, and formed a volunteer committee of 11 people to plan this major event. Over the course of a year, we revamped the website and online submissions process, selected judges, gathered sponsorships and produced an awards show exhibiting the top 27 entries.
