Boston, and Massachusetts in general, is a design force. Innovation and design is just as much part of our history as tea in the harbor. At AIGA Boston we want to share the cool things that people are doing in the city and how design is flourishing. From the boom of tech companies in the seaport district, to the tradition of print in Cambridge and everything in between The Boston Designcast is here to highlight the design that shapes how we live and where you can find it.
