DesignCensus: Respond to AIGA’s Comprehensive Survey of the Design Sector by December 16
Posted by Rebecca Blake on November 30, 2016
Google and AIGA have collaborated on Design Census, a survey to map the educational level, lifestyle, and work habits of designers around the world. International design organizations ico-D, iDSA, and IxDA are supporting partners, as well as SEGD and the National Endowment of the Arts (among others) in the US. The survey is an extension of AIGA’s design survey, and was devised to understand “the complex economic, social, and cultural factors shaping the design practice today.” The survey will be open from December 1-16, and preliminary results will be published shortly afterwards. Designers are encouraged to respond by December 16.
In an attempt to ensure respondents take the survey only once, survey takers must log in with either a Twitter, Google, or AIGA account (all of which are one-way encrypted). The survey responses, though, are entirely anonymous. As a way to encourage engagement with the survey, AIGA is encouraging people to respond to the survey results by creating any content – website, image, poster, animation – which expresses their website, and post it with #designcensus2016.
