Did you hear (obviously not if you weren’t there, but if you did and you didn’t come? Shame on you), well-known designer and former punk rocker, Don Clark of Invisible Creature was nice enough to come and talk to us AND make an amazing customer poster for use too! And with a SOLD OUT crowd, you know it was good night!
If you missed last week's event, we kind of feel sorry for you. Danielle Evan's talk was incredible, inspiring and filled with lots laughs and some pretty sick dance moves. What can we say? She left us hungry for more (pun intended). Because Danielle gave such incredible presentation, it makes my job of recapping it for you even harder, but I'll do my best! So pull up a seat, grab a your fave drink and get ready to be inspired.
#buildsomething is the mantra of the coworking community at Industry. It's a call to all creators to build something, anything, to make the world a better place. At AIGA we're pretty big fans of Industry, so when owner, Tyler Ford, asked us if we could call on Charlotte artists to help build a skate deck gallery for Industry, we were totally in!
One of the most compelling aspects of design is that it is difficult to define. It does not fit into a specific mold or adhere to a certain job description. For many creatives, design is not just a skill set, it's a means by which they explore the world around them. Last Wednesday five of Charlotte's most creative minds shared their journeys through design. Didn't make it? Catch up here.
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! Everyone pulled out their tackiest, funniest and most over-the-top sweaters and a great time was had by all. By the end of the night we had a box full of school supplies and $300 ready to be donated. So just in case you missed out, here's a few photo recap for your viewing pleasure.
Incredibly talented, unapologetically passionate and daring designer are all words that describe the amazing Kelli Anderson.
A beautiful November night was the proverbial "icing on the cake" for this year's Mentor Matchup kickoff event hosted at Village Tavern.
Punkin' Rock, Pump-casso and Exskulliber, OH MY! For the eighth straight year Charlotte Creatives carved up for a good cause and once again, it was an outstanding success!
If you didn’t attend you obviously missed out, but have no fear: AIGA Charlotte’s looking out for you. Here we’ve compiled all of this year’s design submissions for your perusal. (However, if you want to enjoy a beer during your viewing, then that’s entirely on you.)
Each year we are blown away by the talents both the beer and design community bring to the table. We’re not kidding when we say this event just keeps getting better and better.
This past Wednesday, AIGA Charlotte took over the NASCAR Hall of Fame's Legends Room for a SOLD OUT screening of Design Disruptors, a feature-length documentary about the transformative power of design. 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.
