Design for Good is an initiative to build and sustain the implementation of design thinking for social change. This platform creates opportunities for designers to build their practice, their network, and their visibility. Design for Good recognizes the wide range of designers’ work and leadership in social change which benefits the world, our country, and our communities. By connecting and empowering designers through online networking tools, inspirational stories, chapter events, training, national advocacy and promotion, Design for Good serves as a powerful resource for designers who wish to work in this area and a beacon for designers leading the charge. AIGA Seattle is taking this national initiative head on!

Programming & Events

Pour Back Grant / Learn More

We believe what goes around comes around. By empowering the next generation of design leaders who want to give back, AIGA creates a more thriving, vibrant and creative community. In turn, this inspires the next generation of creative leaders to pay it forward.

With the help of local businesses, breweries, wineries, and distilleries, we are able to raise money for great causes. All money raised is put into the Pour Back Fund and then given to talented designers with big ideas and good intentions to help their fellow neighbor.

Changemaker Series / Learn More

The Changemaker Series unites teams of creative professionals with nonprofits and social change organizations to use design thinking, sustainable frameworks and creative tools to help advance their mission.

Join us as we continue a program of networking, workshops and collaborative problem solving all focused on this year’s theme: IMMIGRANTS & REFUGEES.
