As part of the AIGA Design Census, our design team was asked to visualize data from the inaugural report. Meaningful messages tend to be simple. A key message of the census is that designers dig their jobs. We focused on this simple, yet powerful message and brought it to life in a flexible, yet immediate format.
The 2016 Design Census is a partnership between AIGA and Google. It grew out of the annual AIGA Salary Survey and recognizes the need for open source data about designers, for designers. It is supported by numerous design organizations including IDSA, IXdA, SEGD and Ico-D, the NEA and many design schools.
