AIGA Centennial 100 years of Design

Denise Korn, AIGA Fellow, was among those invited by the national design organization to create a visual statement celebrating 100 years of design.

In celebration of it’s 100th Birthday, AIGA- the professional organization for design, invited 100 design leaders from across the country to each pick a year from the past 100 years that has personal meaning to them and design a piece that captures it for them.

Celebrated designers from across the United States were asked to select one year from AIGA’s history and create a social, political or cultural statement.

Denise selected 2003, the year she founded Youth Design, as a powerful catalyst to inspire young inner city high school students to enter the design field, literally changing the face of the design community.

The piece, created in collaboration with senior designer Jeshurun Webb, plays off of Victorian England’s classical silhouettes and creates a sampling of actual Youth Designer’s silhouettes.

The pieces were unveiled at the AIGA Centennial Gala in New York City.
