  • Share your ideas on the Project Work Space on the Triangle Wiki.
  • Will organize a group to attend CityCamp to observe and share ideas. Interested in going, email dfg@raleigh.aigai.org.
  • We’ve introduced The Window Project, a challenge to effect positive social change in your immediate surroundings through creative thought. It’s meant to encourage everyone in the creative community to take a more active role in addressing the social needs of our neighborhoods.

Film Series

  • Was a great success. People enjoyed the speaker/movie concept. David Burney gave a great presentation on Design Thinking prior to the film.
  • We want to know what design-related film we should show next. Email ideas to film@raleigh.aiga.org.

Studio Tour

  • We are going to try to schedule the Durham tour for June.
  • Raleigh tour will be in the fall. We may also consider Raleigh for June in the event that Durham doesn’t work out.

Pursuit Fund

  • We are in the early stages of organizing the next Pursuit Fund round. Start thinking about what project or goal you’d like to submit to receive a grant from AIGA Raleigh.
At our June Homegrown, Agency Firebox founder, Karl Sakas, shared his tips on how to get it all done when you work in design.

In May we had the pleasure of hosting AIGA Seattle President, Gage Mitchell to talk about he has created what he calls a “one-pot life,” combining his passions with his work. Six years ago, Gage started Modern Species, a sustainable branding & design studio. Gage feels we all have a responsibility to be more aware of our choices, thus sustainability in life and in his work are of utmost importance to him, as is delicious food, and craft beer. He wanted to design for businesses that share his ideals. So he founded Modern Species to practice responsible graphic design for forward-thinking organic and natural products companies.
