AIGA FELLOW AWARD
The AIGA National Fellow award program is a means of recognizing seasoned designers who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in practice and conduct within their local or regional design community as well as in their local AIGA chapter. The areas of education, writing, leadership and reputation as well as the practice of design are given equal consideration in measuring significant contribution.
2017 AIGA Fellows:
Born in New Zealand but raised in Illinois, Helen Young earned her BFA with high honors in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois, which included a month study abroad in Warsaw, Poland. She has served as President of AIGA Colorado and oversees AIGA’s Curated app. Since founding EnZed in 1996, Helen’s reputation with clients is a designer who can transform any project into an intriguing communications piece. Her obsessions are amazing textured papers, unusual office supplies, tennis, plants that bloom all summer, small purses, really lovely serif fonts, and tiny cars.
A founding member of AIGA Colorado, Amy Siegel has spent her career striking a balance between creative expression and managing the details and business demands of large, multi-faceted projects. Amy’s client-centered approach combined with her extensive experience in many areas of graphic design demonstrate a history of successful projects and relationships. Amy’s career has been spent working at Gensler for 27 years, serving on the Board of Directors for Access Gallery, and participating on the AIGA Colorado Advisory Board. Her proudest achievements are her two grown children, Megan and Robert.
