AIGA has published this year’s 365: AIGA Year in Design as a digital edition instead of a book. Portland-OR design studio Omnivore produced the annual as an interactive PDF, featuring winners from AIGA’s 2009 competitions, along with creative credits, jurors’ comments and multiple images.
The project coincides with the relaunch of AIGA Design Archives, a remarkable online resource containing more than 20,000 examples of design dating back to 1924.
“We felt that an investment in improving the Design Archives—one of the richest online resources available to practitioners and appreciators of great design worldwide—would have a more significant impact on the design community,” said Richard Grefé, AIGA executive director. “The decision to not print an annual was driven partly by economic factors, but this way more people will now see the work in digital form than would have ever seen it in print.”
