BuzZ April :: Designing for a Better World

Design has the power to change, from how we perceive the world around us to providing new solutions to the problems facing our society. More and more social impact is becoming the measure between a good project and a great one. As this impact becomes more important in our daily work lives, so does the potential for pitfalls. Learn the steps that you can take to make sure you are making the biggest impact with your projects and how to make designing change part of your normal routine.

Join John Fuller, Principal Designer for Phoenixfire Solutions, in discussing how designers can best work with nonprofits, get the most out of the relationship and to create the most impact.

About BuzZ
AIGA Charlotte BuzZ is a meet-up event geared toward Charlotte area creatives and small business owners/employees. Please come join us for coffee as we discuss a different topic each month. Come to learn or come to share the knowledge you already have. Either way, just come see what all the BuzZ is all about.

About The Spoke Easy (BuzZ venue sponsor)
The Spoke Easy is all about the joy of riding a bicycle. They design and build custom bicycles and offer a gathering space for cyclists and designers. Remember the thrill of riding your first bike, the pumping of the pedals, and the wind through your hair as you set out on an adventure around the block? They want to help you experience that all over again and make cycling a part of your daily life—no stretchy pants required. And while they’re at it, they will build a community of like-minded individuals eager to celebrate all things involving two-wheeled transportation.
