AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.


After 10 years of passion for design and engagement with our community our mission has coalesced into the following manifesto:

We are AIGA Toledo.

  • We activate design in a visual and experiential way for the public to engage.

  • We incubate talent and help bring their ideas to fruition.

  • We partner with other institutions to involve design in their spaces, processes, and business.

  • We improve and connect our community through design wherever possible.

Established on October 1, 2007, the Toledo chapter was formed with the intent to connect Toledo area designers locally and to make a difference right here – where we live and work. The mission of AIGA is to advance design as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force.  Stop by and say hello.
