When & Where
LGDA is now AIGA Louisville!
LGDA was formed in 1988 in order to enhance the quality of design in our home community of Louisville, Kentucky. In 2014, LGDA made the jump to an AIGA chapter in order to further facilitate the design conversation and provide greater value to our members. On a larger scale, the group strives to educate the general public and business community about design and its effect on our daily lives. We are an entirely volunteer-based non-profit organization that relies on the passion of its members.
