This month, our community meeting was all about how to get involved with our chapter–through our current programs and new ones suggested by YOU. If you aren’t sure how to get involved–or if you feel like AIGA Raleigh doesn’t have the right events for your needs–we wanted to answer those questions and bridge those gaps. Here is a list of ideas from the meeting we’re super excited about, along with programs you mentioned that we currently offer.
We’re excited to offer our community the chance to win a free ticket to Hopscotch Design Festival! One of the goals with the festival is to catalyze the conversation around design in our region, and continue to elevate North Carolina as a national design destination. Using the hashtag #NCbyDesign highlights others doing great work in the area.

Dine and Draw an event where one can play and connect!
Long story short, the AIGA Raleigh Studio Tour was awesome. I’m always on a bit of design-high after any AIGA event. It’s so inspiring to learn from other designers in the community and know that we can all call AIGA “home”.
Throughout the book, Ward personally examines several phases (or lies if you will) that is heard at one point in a designer's career.
