“I think the difference between what we see now and what we will see in 10 years is simply the world wide recognition of the power that design has.”
- Debbie Millman, Sterling Brands

“As a culture we are obviously facing many many issues and they are all solvable. As designers, we are in a unique position to actually be able to take a different point of view on many of those. Trying to do that alone in your kitchen is very fruitless. I think that is a real big benefit of AIGA that we are able to work together to help solve some of these issues like sustainability and diversity or the way our democracy works. As a group we are far more powerful than individuals.
