The peak national organisation representing the Australian graphic design industry. With more than 2,600 members throughout the creative sector, it’s dedicated to advancing the profession through an interrelated program of state, national, and international activities in education, advocacy, and professional development.
To change the perception and feeling around AGDA—from an association perceived as behind, corporate, and closed off, to one fully open to new technology, new opportunities, new ideas, and of course new members. It also needed to be open to new disciplines—such as digital design, motion design, writing for design, and branding.
AGDA is the connecting force that unites our industry. It celebrates the things that make us different and the things that pull us together. The perfect balance between unity and diversity. The logo connects at either end, representing a chain-link of the industry coming together. The idea was to keep the core brand elements timeless; to resist the urge to make the identity too trendy or cool. That way, there is space for different designers to be more expressive around the logo and typography, while the core elements remain for years to come.
