AIGA 100 Design a Chair

November 20, 2013 / By aigadetroit

In honor of AIGA’s Centennial Celebration, chapters from across the country are customizing chairs to be put on display at the AIGA gallery space in NYC. (At the very first meeting of the group that founded AIGA, each person had to bring his own chair. This initiative is inspired by this nugget of AIGA history and the powerful resonance of the chair as an object of design).

We are looking for 5 local designers to represent AIGA Detroit by collaboratively designing the art that will be applied to our chapter’s chair. Want in?  All you have to do is submit the following to centennial@detroit.aiga.org:

  • Your name
  • A link to your online portfolio (or a PDF file with the 3 best examples of your work)
  • 2-3 sentences telling us why you want to be a part of this project

Submissions are due  by 5pm, November 25, 2013.

The AIGA Detroit Board of Directors will review all submissions and notify the 5 chosen designers on November 25th. We will then work to coordinate the first collaborative design meeting. Please note that the deadline for sending our artwork for production is December 15, 2013.
