Tuft & Needle was founded in 2012 by two software engineers from Silicon Valley who were fed up with the lack of transparency and fairness in the mattress industry. At Tuft & Needle, they believe that business can be honest and premium products don’t need to cost you an arm and a leg. Especially not mattresses.
AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all. Formed in 1989, the Arizona chapter serves the graphic design community and those in related fields within the state of Arizona, and augments the activities of the national AIGA. The Arizona chapter presents several popular and well-attended industry events, including Say Anything, web 101 and the FilmBar film series. Our chapter has increased its demographic reach in recent years, with especially strong representation in Tucson and southern Arizona. Our student membership, the lifeblood of our organization, is growing and highly engaged, providing a continuum of representation from designers just starting out through the most seasoned professionals. The mission of AIGA Arizona is to bring programming to the design community which helps to improve design ability, connect complementary disciplines, encourage social impact and promote community excellence.
