Since 1920 AIGA Medals have been awarded to individuals who have set standards of excellence over a lifetime of work or have made individual contributions to innovation within the practice of design. Their lives, their passion and their work have influenced generations of designers.

Which medalist most inspires you?

Be part of The University of Cincinnati Student Chapter's annual My Favorite Medalist Challenge. Submit a design that embodies your favorite medalist and/or their impact on you.

Your work will be displayed along with others from across the country, seen by the entire graphic design community, archived on the website and judged by distinguished AIGA Medalists themselves.

Certificates of Distinction and Merit will be awarded.
