We are delighted to report that ThoughtForm strategist and designer, Lindsay Quinter, was elected president of AIGA Pittsburgh this year, an accolade that recognizes her continuing leadership in the field of design.
AIGA is the profession’s oldest and largest professional membership organization for design with more than 70 chapters and 25,000 members. Its mission is to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. From design fans to leading practitioners, AIGA’s members come from all backgrounds, fields, and levels of experience. Lindsay will serve as president of the Pittsburgh chapter until the year 2020. “We have a great group of 12 directors on our board, and we’re all really excited about the year to come,” says Quinter.
Quinter joined AIGA Pittsburgh’s board of directors in 2014 with the goal of connecting to the broader design community of Pittsburgh. During her first four years of service, she developed and launched a repeating ten-week, collaborative mentoring program for practicing professionals. “It’s awesome to meet the participants and see what they accomplish together.” The program will carry forward into the chapter’s renewed energy around community engagement. “We want to make sure everyone who’s interested in design feels welcomed by AIGA Pittsburgh.” Under her guidance, the board will offer ways for community members to contribute ideas and help shape programming in order to create meaningful experiences for them.
“I feel honored to be in this position,” Quinter says. “I want AIGA Pittsburgh to continue to grow under my leadership. The organization means a lot to me. It’s paved a way for me that makes me feel like I belong in the Pittsburgh design community. I hope I can help it do the same for others.”
Quinter isn’t the only ThoughtForm team member on the board of directors for AIGA Pittsburgh. Designer Sydney Bennett is starting her third year as the group’s communications director. Contact ThoughtForm to learn how our team of design leaders can help you tackle your next design project.
