IGA brings design to the world, and the world to designers.
As the profession’s oldest and largest professional membership organization for design—with 70 chapters and more than 25,000 members—we advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. From content that defines the global practice to events that connect and catalyze, we work to enhance the value and deepen the impact of design across all disciplines on business, society, and our collective future.
Join AIGA for a roundtable chat in the Amazon conference room with Dian Holton. During the day Dian is deputy art director at AARP and at 4am you may find her installing window displays and dressing mannequins for the GAP. A former military dependent and the oldest of two, she grew up in the U.S., Berlin and Seoul. In fact, her creative passion continues to be fueled by random jaunts globally to discover new social initiatives, meet intriguing artists and gather inspiration for future projects. Her professional background includes publishing (print/digital), integrated marketing, branding, retail visual display and styling. She is in her 8th year serving on the board of AIGA’s Washington DC chapter, and in that time, she’s paired more than 60 mentors with young designers, and has overseen efforts to raise funds for students with financial needs. Her passions include education, philanthropy, fashion and pop culture. Dian received a BS in Graphic Design/Print management from Florida A&M University and is pursuing a Fashion Marketing degree from Parsons The New School.
