What is AIGA Iowa? Please visit our About Us page.

Why support AIGA Iowa?
Our members are the early adopters. They appreciate quality, style and innovation. They spend money and influence buying trends both in their professional community and in society in general. Access to our member base affords our supporters several competitive advantages.

Affinity AIGA Iowa sponsors benefit from a close association with the region’s leading design organization. Through face-to-face interaction, they have the unique opportunity to receive feedback on the effectiveness of their products and services from their most desirable customers.

Visibility AIGA Iowa sponsorship strategically exposes your business to more than 300 designers and design-related businesses across the state of Iowa. AIGA members represent the full spectrum of Iowa’s design community.

Access Sponsorship provides direct access to Iowa’s design professionals. Sponsorship is a cost-effective way to reach your most valued clients—our regional design community—along with their buying power and influence.

AIGA enriches Iowa’s design community, helping our state compete in national and global marketplaces. Put simply, AIGA is good for Iowa. Finally, if that warm fuzzy feeling isn’t enough, as a 501c non-profit organization, all donations to AIGA Iowa are tax deductible!

The AIGA Iowa Sponsorship System
Other organizations may have “Gold, Silver, and Bronze” sponsorship levels but, as designers, we enjoy doing things a little differently. In a nod to the RGB color system, our donations are separated into Red, Green, and Blue levels.

RGB sponsors are monetary contributors to an event or initiative. Levels begin at $250 and offer progressively increased exposure to our member base. Because AIGA Iowa does not sell its mailing list, this is the best way to reach our members.

They also receive complimentary admission for two to the event they support.

Printing and Paper sponsors receive all the benefits of a Green level sponsor.
