AIGA NM is hosting a CreateAthon!



This is a 24-hour creative marathon where community volunteers come together to provide creative services for nonprofits.

  • Do you know a local nonprofit that could use a marketing and advertising boost to get the word out and raise funds, but just can’t seem to get the resources to make it happen?
  • Are you a professional looking for something beyond the networking meetups, that’s out of the box, uses the skillsets you’re passionate about, and gives you a ton of creative freedom?

CreateAthon is the solution! Nonprofits get the boost they need, and professionals get creative freedom, awesome portfolio projects, and a night full of fun while working with like-minds and doing something impactful for the best of causes! Together we are going to ignite, accelerate and amplify design-driven social change! #DesignForGood

How It Works

Several New Mexico nonprofits will be selected to receive pro bono services from the CreateAthon event. For each nonprofit selected, there will be a team of 4 to 5 professionals. The more professionals from the community that sign up to participate, the more nonprofits we can work with. During the event, teams will work together to create solutions for their nonprofit’s needs. Examples include: Websites, branding & collateral (logos, brochures, posters, business cards, etc.), fundraising campaigns, advertising & marketing strategies, content creation, and more. Check out some of the outstanding work made at past CreateAthon events.

This adventure was opened nationally back in 2002 and now more than 101 companies and organizationshave participated, benefiting over 1,300 nonprofits, and creating more than 3,500 projects at a market value of$16.7 million! Now that’s a lot of fun in the name of social good!
