AIGA Standards of Professional Practice


This course introduces designers to concepts related to standards of practice, including ethics, accessibility, and diversity and inclusion. Because design is often intertwined with the culture, brand, and vision of an organization, designers play a key role in promoting ethical and inclusive business practices. This course equips designers with the foundational knowledge necessary to make a positive impact in their organizations and their work. Through a series of interactive exercises and case studies, designers can test their knowledge and apply what they're learning to real-world scenarios.
