We are Design.

We are the IA.

I am proud to work alongside the most skilled artists and craftsmen within the entertainment business and the world. When I completed my education, I wanted to work as a professional artist and IATSE provided me with that opportunity. Knowing that my pension and benefits are covered through my work, provides peace of mind for me and my family. There is strength within our collective unions.
