Staying active in the design community is a driving factor in the success of any design firm. Boom Creative volunteers any way we can. For four years our President, Drew Dallet, was the treasurer of AIGA Cleveland (American Institute of Graphic Arts), an organization whose purpose is to further excellence in communication design as a broadly defined discipline, strategic tool for business and cultural force.
On Monday, September 30, 1968, AIGA Cleveland inaugurated the Fall Lecture Series with our first speaker: Dr. James Eckman. Educator, author, and historian, Eckman presented his speech “the Heritage of the Printer.” That presentation brought to fruition what eleven founders had established as a major priority-to bring interesting communication arts practitioners to Cleveland, and find innovative ways to fund new educational programs. cleveland.aiga.org
AIGA’s mission is to advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force. AIGA, the professional association for design, is the place design professionals turn to first to exchange ideas and information, participate in critical analysis and research and advance education and ethical practice. AIGA sets the national agenda for the role of design in its economic, social, political, cultural and creative contexts. AIGA is the oldest and largest membership association for professionals engaged in the discipline, practice and culture of designing. Founded as the American Institute of Graphic Arts in 1914 as a small, exclusive club, AIGA now represents 22,000 designers through national activities and local programs developed by 59 chapters and 240 student groups. www.aiga.org
