Standards are coming!

An ad hoc committee has been formed as the result of many conversations on the About.com Graphic Design forum. The goal of this committee will be (a) to form a working draft that outlines a unified code of ethics for professional graphic designers and (b) attempt to gain some measure of popular support as well as uniform adoption by the various leading GD organizations.Currently, the GAG, AIGA and other GD organizations in the U.S. have their own standards of professional practice. There should be only one set.We will, of course, be using this space to help promote awareness of whatever the result of the unified standards ends up being. Hopefully this will launch a discussion that leads to an industry-wide set of professional standards. Of course, this is a moving target but perhaps this first step toward unifying standards is, as Churchill would say, “the end of the beginning”..chris{}
