MOO-ving on Up

If you are at the Supporter level and up, you can enjoy 20% off your first MOO order. Have you seen their work? Gorgeous. Business cards, postcards, stickers, oh my. They offer full-color and double sided printing and if you need it in a hurry–next day delivery. If you are already a MOO customer you can log in to get 10% off all your future orders.

Sweet Eye-candy

We’re designers. We’re suckers for some beautiful design and bonus points if it’s a tangible experience. There are so many opportunities to save on books and magazines. Magazines like Communication Arts, Dwell, HOW Magazine, and many more. You can get your design fix to your door like a gift every couple weeks.  

Plus for the nerds out there, AIGA members get 40% off all the books in the Rockport AIGA Design Bookshelf. Books on typography, patterns, architecture, even books on welding and surf boards for some unexpected inspiration.

Boston or Bust

Those are all well and good, but what about locally? What if you want to get a space in the community to work on a project or attend events? We’ve got you covered. AIGA Boston members can enjoy even more.

Breathe Easy

Maybe you need some space? Breather is like ZipCar, but for spaces. Breather offers spaces for rent in Boston, around the US, and abroad, where you can really be productive. A Breather space helps you punctuate your work life, allowing you to meet, work and focus without distraction.  AIGA members can register here and book spaces.

Just Dance

Sometimes you just have to wake up and dance and Daybreaker is just the place to do that. Daybreaker is an early morning dance movement in 15 cities around the world and growing. Events start with a one hour yoga + fitness experience and then dance with reckless abandon for two hours before work. You never know where our next location will be and what surprises are in store. AIGA receives a discount for 15% off any ticket with the code AIGA. Check out postings for Boston events.


Aside from all these awesome perks you can also get into all AIGA Boston events for either a discounted price exclusive for members, or some for free. We have events for all kinds of designers and the design enthusiasts, including workshops, lectures, social mixers. Last year our events spanned different areas of design with Redesigning, Summer Design Trivia Night, the Unconscious Bias Workshop, The Poster: The History & Influence of a Classic Medium, and many more. You won’t want to miss any coming up.
