2018 AIGA Chicago Awards Celebration

Join us for a night of drinks, light bites, and celebratory cheers on Thursday June 14th—we’re gathering at Forth Level to honor this year’s recipients of the 2018 AIGA Chicago Awards.

The designers, companies, and organizations we're recognizing are an unparalleled group of talent that has enhanced the profession, impact, and culture of design in Chicago. Their work strives to unite all ages, disciplines, races, income, genders, and perspectives in the design community, reduce violence in Chicago, and bolster K-12 design education.

Most definitely worth celebrating. We'll see you there!
