AGI stands for Alliance Graphique Internationale. It unites the world’s leading graphic designers in a professional gathering of common interest and intent. Membership is by invitation only: to be a member is to be judged ‘a person of influence and importance nationally and internationally’ by existing members. AGI was founded in 1954. Past members have included Cassandre, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand. Current members include Wim Crouwel, Massimo Vignelli, Paula Scher and Marian Bantjes. AGI members have been collectively responsible for the design of many of the world’s top corporations and institutions, as well as for countless examples of globally known publications, illustrations and posters. And they are also responsible for providing teaching in many of the best design schools in the world.
