Founded in 1989, AIGA Upstate New York is the professional association for design representing students and professionals.
Founded in 1989, AIGA Upstate New York provides education, networking, and support to students and professionals. While our Chapter is self-governing in every way, it operates in a manner consistent with the mission of the parent organization: to advance design as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force.
AIGA Upstate New York has increased its demographic reach in recent years, with especially strong representation in the Capital Region, Central New York and the Finger Lakes Region. Our student membership, the lifeblood of our organization, is growing and highly engaged, providing a continuum of representation from designers just starting out through the most seasoned professionals.
