PRIME: Celebrating Design Excellence in Indianapolis
Good things are happening for the Indianapolis design community and Miles Design! PRIME–the first annual AIGA Indy Design Awards Show–is opening to the public this Friday, and we’re excited to share that four of our entries were chosen to be included in the show.
For those of you not familiar with PRIME, or AIGA Indy for that matter, here’s a quick background on both. AIGA, the professional association for design, is the oldest and largest professional design organization consisting of more than 22,000 members and 64 local chapters across the country. Our local Indianapolis chapter represents design students, professionals, and educators all across Indiana–providing a mix of events, initiatives, outreach programs, and more.
This is the first year for PRIME, and it’s been a long time coming! The pieces honored this year were selected for their visual excellence and demonstration of strong design processes and real-world, measurable results for the client. The judges, no doubt, had some very tough decisions to make, and I don’t envy them one bit! Accepted work will be on display until Thanksgiving at Dean Johnson Gallery in downtown Indianapolis. After that, a book showcasing the work will be created and distributed both locally and to AIGA chapters across the country.
Miles Design is honored to be recognized among our peers, and we’re even more excited that we can be a part of a show that celebrates the great design happening in and around Indy. There’s a lot of talent here, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it! If you’re free Friday, November 6th, we hope you’ll have a chance to mix and mingle with us at the show opening. And, if you find yourself downtown before Thanksgiving, take some time to stop by the gallery. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
