Founded: 1984

 

What activates us:

The simple things—our awesome members, our Best of New England (BoNE) Show, playing fetch in the park, a good belly rub, napping in the sun—really get our tail wagging.

 

You’d be surprised to learn:

We’re very individualistic little animals: some are high-spirited and clownish, some are calm and dignified. Some are stubborn, while others are sweet and gentle. But in general, we’re an altogether dapper and charming little chapter.

 

Quote that describes us:

“Wag more. Bark less.”

Founded: 2005

 

Our design heroes:

Chip Kidd, Art Chantry, Modern Dog, IDEO, Young Monster, Neville Brody.

 

Our chapter tastes like:

BBQ.

 

If a movie was made about us it would be:

It’s Due When?,” it would be shot as a pseudodocumentary and would star all of our members.

Founded: 1987

 

What activates us:

The largest event that has consistently

brought our chapter together has been the

Y Conference. We’re also motivated by our

community outreach projects like BenchMark

(50 artful benches), TweetStreet (10 designer

birdhouses and urban park design) and

our latest adventure Bowhaus (the exhibit

and auction of 101 designer doghouses in

September 2011).

You’d be surprised to learn:

Although we aren’t near the ocean, Utah’s

state bird is the seagull. In 1848, seagulls

saved many Utahans by eating the hordes of

Rocky Mountain crickets that were destroying

our crops.

 

Salt Lake City’s famous food:

Two words: fry sauce. Not quite food, but it’s

a Utah thing and gooood. You’ll find it just

about anywhere you can order fries.

Founded: 1988

 

What activates us:

The desire to see Atlanta recognized as a thriving center for design brings students and seasoned pros together. This camaraderie and common focus translates into fully engaged members, ready to learn and evolve as a community and as individuals.

Sweet tea.

 

Atlanta must-sees:

The High Museum and MODA, a trip down Ponce de Leon and Castleberry Hill.

What activates us:

Each member brings a range of interests,

experiences and backgrounds to our chapter.

Whether type nerds, web geeks or just design

socialites, what we have in common is a love

for design and a belief that AIGA matters.

City of Bridges.
