Design Associates Student Guild

Design Associates/AIGA student chapter

Design Associates or (DA) is the ECU student guild that promotes the interests of Graphic Design and Illustration. Student members join DA for a nominal fee and activities include guest lecturers and trips. DA has enhanced student learning in numerous ways such as bringing nationally recognized individuals to lecture and attending professional events sponsored by local groups such as AIGA/Raleigh. DA is student run and relies on student involvement and leadership to maximize its potential as a resource.
Students are encouraged to join and participate in the group projects that promote both programs through special events and visiting designers and illustrators. Here is a list of some of the most recent visiting illustrators:
