AIGA Launches New Zeldman-ified Site

Well, we knew this day would come–in fact, we were so prepared for this day to come that we spent a little extra time on the AIGA site the other day, saying goodbye to its sweet, stodgy interface. We don’t know how long ago that site had been around, but judging by the color palette, we’d guess 1973.

Today, it’s a whole new AIGA, after almost a year of collaboration with Happy Cog team leaders Jeffrey Zeldman and Jason Santa Maria, and tech support from Thirdwave. Executive Director Ric Grefe seems pleased:

“We are proud of the fact that www.aiga.org has regularly exposed an audience 10 times our membership to the stories of design excellence and effectiveness, providing inspiration and education, and we are confident that the redesigned site will go even further toward meeting those ends.”

Our only wish is that a little “Tell us what you think” button would lead to a discussion about the new site. But maybe we’ll leave that up to one of the other sites that focuses on that kind of stuff. Ready? Check it out.

Update: More at Happy Cog and from Zeldman and Santa Maria.
