Created by the Salt Lake City chapter of AIGA, the ReVinylize Project promotes and encourages social awareness with the power of creativity. By reclaiming local billboard material, the once giant images are transformed into smaller works of art in the form of unique vinyl bags and accessories.

The ReVinylize Project empowers the public to use design thinking to stimulate thought, dialog and action by holding workshops, community events and local projects.

AIGA, the professional association for design, stimulates thinking about design, demonstrates the value of design and empowers the success of designers at each stage of their careers. AIGA’s mission is to advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force. Founded in 1914, AIGA remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design, and is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational institution.

The AIGA SLC chapter is a local organization that shares the mission of AIGA. AIGA SLC supports local members by organizing projects and events—such as mixers, lectures, conferences and competitions—in our community to help educate and inform current and future designers, as well as the broader public about the value of design. Chapters provide invaluable opportunities for networking and forming connections.

Today the Salt Lake City chapter has over 350 members. The membership consists of industry professionals and innovative students from 8 Student Groups (University of Utah, Brigham Young University, Weber State University, Art Institute, Southern Utah University, Utah Valley University and two Stevens Henager College locations).

The Chapter is governed by a 19-member volunteer Board of Directors. We have no operating costs and all proceeds from this project goes to support local programs, events and initiatives.
