We received a lot of great feedback from our post about the new AIGA Charlotte board members—people really seemed to enjoy knowing who they can approach to volunteer or ask questions. In that vein, we wanted to highlight other members of the board, some of the ones who are returning from last year. If you see us around, please stop us and say hello. We’re excited about the design community here in Charlotte, and we want to get to know the people in it.

My favorite AIGA event was: Design For Good Poster Initiative – it was a great event that combined multiple segments of the Charlotte community (creatives, policy leaders, non-profits, etc.)
If I could schedule anyone for an AIGA Charlotte event, it would be: George Lois. He’s had a brilliant career and I respect and admire how he presented and defended his work. It would be incredible to hear his stories first-hand.
