The AIGA Raleigh Story (2011)

AIGA Raleigh celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011, founded as the 8th chapter in the country in 1986. This film tells the story of the 2010 establishment of a new AIGA Raleigh Design Community, and how community volunteers established a shared purpose, a new identity, and a new way of working for the chapter.

Many thanks to the enormously talented Mike Esser, Jesse Paddock, and Ryan Shelley who were very generous to give their time and effort to produce this film. A special thank you also to Jason Rizzo, for contributing his photography and video to the project.

The AIGA Raleigh Story: Community (2014)

Part two of the AIGA Raleigh Design Community story, set in 2014, focuses on the continuance of these efforts to bring our community together in our shared purpose of creating a place where design thrives.

Many more thanks to Mike Esser and Brian Crawford who lent their passion and time to producing this film.
