This is the first post of a new beginning/dawning/epoch. The MA is over. The show is up (and nearly over). Most of the work by all the postgrad students finishing in 2011 can be seen here. I can be found here
Hi, I was browsing AIGA website, and I found out the organization has set up standards for professional practice in 1996. I am not sure if they have updated version but this this is what they have on the website:
In light of what we discussed on Wednesday both in the group meeting and seminar I wanted to collect together all the things I would like to see in a professional body for visual communicators. This is very much what I personally would like to see in a professional body so not everyone will agree. It is also very much a draft, not exhaustive and as a professional body is quite a pragmatic thing to propose I wanted to be idealistic in what I think its remit and purpose should be. I am referring to it as a constitution (very American) for want of a better word and to avoid calling it a manifesto. There are lots of grey edges to some of the statements as we discussed as a group but I wanted to make some statements based on general principles initially.
