Voice, More Than Ever...More than ever

Voiced! Voice finally happened! AIGA's ninth biennial design conference, which had to be postponed last fall, took place in Washington, D.C. March 21-23, 2002. Twelve hundred designers descended upon the nation's capital to talk passion, power and politics and party hard. A world-class roster of socially-engaged and idiosyncratic voices had been invited to demonstrate their potency as creative practitioners and as human beings. Some of their presentations are available in this website.

AIGA wishes to extend a huge heartfelt thank you to all those who selflessly contributed to the success of this event: the speakers, the advisors, the designers of the promotional pieces, the volunteers, the board and chapter presidents and the AIGA/DC chapter. But the loudest shout goes out to the attendees, especially those who stuck with us and signed up twice–a truly dedicated crowd.

Although the Voice conference may be over, the issues surrounding design's social and political agency continue to occupy AIGA. We are inspired and challenged to focus less upon the world of design and more upon the world.
