Once again AIGA and AAF joined forces to throw our Annual Donations & Libations fundraiser for Classroom Central. This year's theme was #beUgly and boy was it!

So just in case you missed out, here's a few photo recap for your viewing pleasure.

The film gave us a never-before-seen perspective on how companies like MailChimp, Airbnb and Facebook approach design and how their choices have led to their success.
For our recent Design for Good Poster Initiative, we called on you—the design community—to create posters in an effort to inform Charlotte citizens about the changes you thought would improve the city now, and would inspire positive change towards making Charlotte a world-class city by 2025.
