2016 AIGA Chicago Awards Celebration
AIGA Chicago honors the 2016 award recipients—an inimitable group of talent that has enhanced the profession, impact and culture of design in Chicago. We’re recognizing people and organizations that have pushed aesthetic boundaries while preserving the graphic arts excellence that’s so vital to our city. This year, we are excited to announce the addition of the Emerging Designer award, created to support those in the Chicago design community who are still in the early stages of their career, but doing great things nonetheless. 

Join us for a night of drinks, light bites and well-deserved applause for the following recipients:

The Fellow Award
Maria Grillo and Victor Margolin

The Corporate Leadership Award
Wilson Sporting Goods Co. and Wright 

The Above & Beyond Award
Andrew Dembitz

The Emerging Designer Award
Alyssa Low, Frances MacLeod and Amy Schwartz
