Why Sponsor Your Local AIGA Chapter?

Show you value quality work by supporting a quality organization. AIGA is a nonprofit that depends on our generous sponsors. We are your best sales leads, so put your company name in front of an experienced, discerning and professional audience. Connect with and invest in a broad network of ambassadors who can amplify your message.

Directly reach your target audience, strengthen your brand and connect with design influencers. Through sponsorship, your company can cultivate mutually beneficial relationships with the professional and student design community giving you several key competitive advantages:

  • Affinity. Your organization will benefit from a close association with the region’s leading design organization.
  • Face-to-Face Interaction. You’ll have a rare opportunity to gain feedback on the effectiveness of your products and services from your most desirable customers.
  • Reach. Local AIGA members represent the interests of Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo County professionals, educators and students engaged in the design process. Our members are creative professionals of all stripes: designers, illustrators, photographers, web developers, copywriters, videographers, teachers, students and more.
