“100 Years of Design” Preview
In celebration of the AIGA's centennial and the profound impact of American design on our culture, this microsite, a preview of the final version scheduled for release in January 2014, acts as a living resource for design.
Focusing on the intersections between design and society, “100 Years of Design” brings to life exemplary works from the AIGA's digital archives, quotes from leading designers, and significant moments from the organization’s history. These elements are woven into narratives to present how design informs, connects, delights, influences, and assists us.
The experience also encourages visitors to join a dynamic conversation about the role design plays in our lives. Users are invited to share their favorite works and describe what they mean to them.
The final website, to be unveiled early next year, will tell the story of the last century in American design. It will feature additional artifacts, excerpts from interviews with living masters, and the ability to see everyone's contributions to the conversation.© 2013 Second Story, Inc.
