New York State of Design

September 29th, 2017 | Troy, NY | Presented by AIGA Upstate New York

Celebrating the design and thinking of creatives across upstate New York

New York State of Design is a state-wide curated show created to highlight professional communication design work while celebrating the design and thinking of creatives in Upstate New York. But it's more than just a show. Our goal is to engage the design community, but more importantly, to engage the business community.

The conversation between design and business is ambiguous...

...to say the least, and New York State of Design strives to produce more than a collection of beautiful work. Design is ever changing; there are always new technologies, new tools and new ways to approach a problem. New York State of Design captures a portrait of design today and showcases the breadth and depth of our members and our community. Additional events offered in tandem with the show will be announced. The exhibition can also be viewed online with all of the entrants on display, in addition to the jury-selected winners shown in Troy, NY.

A Curated Show

A selection of work curated by industry leaders will be highlighted in a show at the Troy Innovation Garage in the Fall. But New York State of Design is not about winners and losers—it is a celebration of the rich diversity of talent in upstate New York.
