Denise Korn, "Changing the Face of Design"

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.

A Bone for Oak

The AIGA Boston chapter and New England’s design community come together to celebrate the best design in the region.

We’re incredibly proud to announce that we recently won a BoNE Show Award for our recent branding work for Oak Long Bar and Kitchen. Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, the BoNE Show highlights the best work done throughout New England over the past two years. It’s an honor to be selected, and we had a ball seeing all the great work that our community creates.

In addition to the award for Oak, one of our designers—Steven Olimpio—won a BoNE in the student category for a poster that he created with Dave Tschiegg for Noertheastern University’s Department of Art & Design.

AIGA Fellow Award: Denise Korn

On the evening of September 14th, AIGA Boston presented the AIGA Fellow Award to Denise Korn for being a design visionary and youth advocate.

This gala event was in two acts: a dynamic awards ceremony featuring the theme “The Work Ahead” at the Huntington Theatre Company’s Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, followed by a killer dance party at the Boston Ballet.

The AIGA Boston Fellow Award recognizes a senior designer who has made a significant contribution to raising the standard of excellence in practice and conduct within the local or regional design community. This year’s recipient is our very own Denise Korn, principal of Korn Design and founder of Youth Design, an organization that provides career pathways in design-related industries for talented urban youth.

A panel of distinguished speakers shared how Denise has challenged, motivated, and supported them in their efforts to do creative, meaningful work in their professional and personal lives. Dancers from the Boston Ballet staged a special performance in honor of the occasion.
