Newton, MA – The Gallery at Mount Ida College is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the AIGA’s 365 | Design Effectiveness Competition traveling exhibit from January 31 to March 3, 2012. The key criterion for 2011’s competition was to “show excellence as the successful pairing of effectiveness and aesthetics”. See the most effective current work in communication design, as chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers from Target, Autodesk, Fjord and more. The selections from this traveling exhibition began at the AIGA National Design Center in New York and ultimately will become part of the design archives of AIGA and the Denver Art Museum.
