In-House Designers

Work In-House without being out of touch.

Established in 2009, the In-House Designers Committee fosters awareness and respect within the AIGA Minnesota chapter by providing resources, support, education and enhanced programming specific to their needs. With in-house designers making up roughly a third of AIGA Minnesota’s membership, the committee’s goal is to give this group a voice and enhance the connection of in-house designers to the local chapter.

INitiative: INsights to help INhouse design teams thrive

More than half of all professional designers in the United States are employed full-time by corporations and organizations. To address the unique opportunities and challenges faced by this in-house community, AIGA has partnered with The Creative Group (TCG) to form “INitiative,” a program to help in-house designers make a greater impact at their companies, evolve professionally and connect with a broader network of peers. INitiative will deliver inspiration, advice and insights via online channels and in-person events:

  • INform e-newsletter: AIGA members can sign up on My AIGA for a quarterly in-house newsletter highlighting new stories, opinion pieces, profiles and upcoming INitiative events.
  • INformation and expertise: Look below for a growing collection of articles and advice for in-house designers and the companies where they work.
  • INspiring videos: INitiative affinity sessions and workshops at the 2011 “Pivot: AIGA Design Conference” featured renowned authorities on in-house design topics. Videos are coming soon!
  • INitiative events: In 2012, AIGA will host INitiative events across the country to address industry-wide solutions and innovations, as well as regional “boot camps” geared toward in-house managers.
