National Design Committee

The National Design Committee is the primary developer of DSA’s national branding and graphic design. The committee oversees a team of over 150 visual arts volunteers (and growing) with professional level expertise in graphic design, illustration, video/filmmaking, animation, and photography.

This team can handle virtually any visual/graphic design project including related support with page layout, pre-press, document/book design, screen/copy writing, as well as fine arts and a variety of other media. The committee is dedicated to producing a high quality and consistent visual identity for DSA nationwide.

YES! I'M INTERESTED!

Please tell us about your branch's graphic design projects! We want hear from you! To request a copy of the DSA Style Guide or graphic design support please contact Dustin Guastella: dsa.design.committee@gmail.com. Please be patient. We're getting a lot of requests right now (which is great), but that means we need a bit more time to respond.

If you are a visual artist and would like to volunteer for the National Design Committee please sign-up!
