BRIGHT LIGHTS: THE AIGA AWARDS GALA

A lifetime of achievement in design can take many forms. The 2013 recipients of the AIGA Medal, the highest honor of the design profession, represent the range of contributions designers make to clients, future generations and society at large—through inspiration, thoughtful critique, social impact and the education of future design leaders. Join us in New York City on April 19 for “Bright Lights,” where AIGA will recognize eight designers with this prestigious award: John Bielenberg, William Drenttel and Jessica Helfand, Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, Stefan Sagmeister, Lucille Tenazas, and Wolfgang Weingart.
