2013 Summer of Good
Mon, Jun 3, 2013 - Fri, Jul 26, 2013
Nashville, Tennessee

Summer of Good is AIGA Nashville's take on the national AIGA Design for Good effort with its roots grounded on the principles of the Design for Good platform: to build and sustain design thinking for design-driven social change.


Over the course of eight weeks this summer, four teams comprised of design student interns and professional mentors (professional designers working in Nashville) will be paired with select non-profit organizations to address the organization’s design needs by applying design thinking, problem solving, and technical design skills. Each team will be assisted by an AIGA facilitator and professional relationships are forged between the students, mentors and non-profit organizations.


At the end up the Summer of Good program, AIGA Nashville will host a reception open to all from the Nashville design, non-profit and business communities, where the design teams will present the work they have accomplished.



The Summer of Good is open to incoming senior level students currently enrolled in a design program. We are currently looking for eight design students and one web design student. The program will run for eight weeks beginning June 3 and lasting through July 26, with final presentations at the end of July / beginning of August.


The program will consist of roughly 150 working hours*, weekly meetings with a mentor(s) and occasional meetings with the non-profit and AIGA facilitator. Design students will work to create design pieces, creative briefs and plans while documenting your progress. The web design intern will work with the Director of the Summer of Good program to create a program site and manage program communications. Work will be showcased at a final presentation celebration.


To apply, download the application and follow the instructions. The deadline for student applications is May 6.
