About AIGA San Diego

The San Diego chapter of AIGA, the professional organization for design, has been a dynamic contributor to the local design community since 1987. HOW and Print magazines have cited AIGA San Diego as “one of the hottest communities for design in the nation.” Our events provide educational, career enhancement and social opportunities for students and working professionals in creative fields including graphic design, photographers, illustrators and web developers.

Our board meetings take place on the second Monday of each month. At least once per year we conduct open board meetings where all are welcome to attend. Announcements about open board meetings are sent via email to our membership.

Come attend an event

You don’t have to be a member to attend AIGA events. Our AIGA Spirits Happy Hours are free to everyone and are a great way to meet other creative. Non-members usually pay a higher entrance rate for other events.
