The Design Club welcomes any Farmingdale Student interested in making, looking or talking about art and graphic design.
Club activities include AIGA events, critiques, studio and museum visits, software tutorials, and artistic collaborations with other areas of the campus. Members have engaged in design for other campus clubs and associations, design of the Farmingdale yearbook, holiday card designs and printing and other special Design Club projects.
The Design Club meets during club hour every Tuesday.
"AIGA’s mission is to advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force.
AIGA, the professional association for design, is the premier place for design—to discover it, discuss it, understand it, appreciate it, be inspired by it. It is the place designers turn to first to exchange ideas and information, participate in critical analysis, and research and advance education and ethical practices. AIGA sets the national agenda for the role of design in its economic, social, political, cultural and creative contexts.
Founded in 1914, AIGA remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design. AIGA now represents more than 20,000 design professionals, educators and students through national activities and local programs developed by 65 chapters and 200 student groups. AIGA serves designers with five critical functions:
AIGA supports the interests of professionals, educators and students who are engaged in the process of designing, regardless of where they are in the arc of their careers. The disciplines represented in the profession range from book and type design through the traditional communication design disciplines to the newer disciplines of interaction design, experience design and motion graphics. In addition, AIGA supports the interests of those involved in designing from other disciplines, professions and business who share designers’ commitment to advancing understanding of the value of design."
