Occasionally, a member comes along whose talent and toil has so impacted the design world that, without it, the landscape would look completely different. The AIGA Fellow Award was established to recognize these individuals.

Doug Stucky, President, AIGA Wichita


On Sept. 18, 2014, the Wichita chapter of AIGA presented Bill Gardner with its first-ever Fellow Award for his contributions to the local, national and global design community. During the program, more than 10 current and former Gardner Design designers presented their work and lightly roasted the man of the hour. As one of its founding members, its first chapter president and longest-standing member, Bill was honored to have received this recognition.

A heartfelt “Thank you!” to everyone who joined us for the pre-party and program—this was one for the books!
