AIGA is a professional association for designers with over 66 chapters and 20,000 members; it stands for American Institute of Graphic Arts but has members from all design backgrounds. AIGA's main mission is to "advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force". They embody their mission statement through five verbs: inform, communicate, inspire, represent, and stimulate.
