AIGA WM COVID-19 Support & Resources

We are compiling a list of resources to help you stay connected and supported during this challenging time we’re facing together. We encourage everyone in our community to stay informed and take the necessary precautions to stay healthy. This list will continue to be added to as more resources become available. If you have a suggestion to add please let us know in our Slack community or email them to us here.

AIGA is committed to advancing the future of design within our communities, among our members, in small businesses and corporations, in educational institutions, and for individuals. We are in an unprecedented time, where change takes place every minute of the day. Please use this resource hub as a guide to some of the most critical needs our community faces today, and will face in the coming weeks and months.

Creativity At Home

  • Viral Art Project – The Viral Art Project began as a way to bring attention to the challenges all of us are facing during the pandemic. At its heart, it is a call to action for graphic designers, artists, and other creative people to use their talents to help raise awareness. Designers are invited to submit poster art highlighting the challenges we are facing and to help promote messages about how we can get through this together.
  • Adobe Coloring Book – Each week this spring, the Adobe Coloring Book will feature coloring pages created by some of their favorite artists that you can print or finish with your favorite Adobe apps.
