In 2008, AIGA CO Scholarship was created to help young designers who are enrolled in an accredited college design program by providing a $1,500 scholarship, the newest version of Adobe Creative Suite. Today AIGA CO offers a $1500 and $500 scholarship and a one year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. The winners of the scholarship demonstrate leadership within the design community as well as outstanding work in the field of design.
AIGA announced in 2010 the renaming of the scholarship to the Robert Taylor AIGA CO Scholarship in honor of the late Robert Taylor, whose designs, leadership and commitment to the design community fueled inspiration and advancing design in Denver. Mr. Taylor was an AIGA Colorado Fellow Award Recipient, and served on the Board of Directors for AIGA and ADCD, and served on the Advisory Board for AIGA Colorado.
Our past winners include: Kalene Thompson (2009), Mia Huang (2010), Stephanie Gibson (2011) and our most recent recipient, Samantha Kogle (2012), Gustavo Esquinca (2013). These young designers have all demonstrated their innovation, creativity and passion and leadership in design as a practice.
