MENLO PARK, Calif., May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Creative Group, a specialized staffing service for creative, digital and marketing talent, today announced it has partnered with AIGA, the professional association for design, on a nationwide career development program for designers at every stage of their career journey. The new undertaking, Design Career Compass, was established to help managers attract and retain top creative talent, designers find fulfilling jobs and advance in their careers, and AIGA members at all levels build leadership skills.

Design Career Compass will provide resources, career advice, coaching and industry insights to design professionals online and in person. This includes a newsletter and job alert emails, as well as presentations, workshops and other career- and leadership-focused activities hosted by AIGA chapters in partnership with The Creative Group.

"Beyond the in-house sector, we felt there was an opportunity for us to better serve the broader creative audience. Design Career Compass will provide 360-degree career support to all designers so they can find fulfillment and success at work and in their communities."

"Design, like every other profession, has been buffeted by the forces of change," added Julie Anixter, executive director of AIGA.
