AIGA NY: Alain Sylvain

Thu, Dec 1, 2022

In this talk, SYLVAIN founder and CEO Alain Sylvain proposes that it’s time for an overdue reckoning and a new approach to consulting, design, and creative work. He will assert that agencies, studios, and consultancies must move from bystanders and even, at times, enablers to their clients’ questionable decisions to stewards of a better, more sustainable society. He’ll provide tangible ways through which they can self-impose ethical standards, measure themselves over time, and report on their journeys transparently.

Co-presented with the Museum of Arts and Design, this program is part of AIGA NY’s Fresh Dialogue event series focusing on current events, issues of cultural relevance, and emerging topics in the world of design.  

Alain Sylvain is the founder and CEO of SYLVAIN, a strategy and design consultancy that provokes progress for companies, people, and society. Clients include Google, American Express, Spotify, Airbnb, Blackrock, Amazon, Diageo, GM, the NBA, UBER, New York Times, Nike, Apple, and others. Founded in 2010, the company is headquartered in New York City, with offices in Amsterdam and Richmond, VA.
