AIGA-AZ Best Of 2021

About AIGA Arizona’s Best of 2021 Gallery

The Best of 2021 voting period is now closed.

The Best of 2021 Gallery represents work produced by designers in Arizona over the past year. Inside, you'll find everything from full brand campaigns to personal projects to websites and more, from designers with all levels of experience, student to veteran.

The gallery has been open for public voting during the lead-up to Phoenix Design Week (*end)from Monday, October 18 through Friday, October 22, 2021. Unlike a traditional design competition, there are no official judges and no categories — this is a "people's choice" vote. Viewers were asked to evaluate each entry and vote for the one(s) that exhibit the best that design can be, such as:

  • Solves a challenge in a unique way
  • Communicates a message effectively
  • Demonstrates an inspired degree of creativity, talent, and skill
  • Makes excellent use of the medium – printed or digital
  • Surprises and delights YOU!

The entry that gets the most votes will be announced as Best of 2021 at the end of the Phoenix Design Week (*end) virtual conference on Sunday, October 24. The AIGA AZ board of directors may also choose to award special recognition depending on the number of entries and votes received.

To watch the Best of 2021 award ceremony live, be sure to snag your all-access pass to Phoenix Design Week (*end) today – make plans to join us in celebrating Arizona's creative community! This year, all passes are entirely donation-based and get you access to all AIGA Arizona-hosted events (and recordings!), all weekend long.

This Best of 2021 project is part of an ongoing initiative by AIGA Arizona to document design in Arizona. Learn more about the AIGA Arizona design archive.
