Creating handmade elements are good for the designer's soul. It's good for business too, as more people crave the textures, imperfections and warmth of hand-made objects, reconnecting them with the long line of artists before them and breaking out of the computer box and getting their hands dirty. Andy Kurtts, Design Manager of The Fresh Market, will walk the audience through a few real world examples from his work where he was able to incorporate elements as well as share ways to get your own hands dirty.

Homegrown, a Lunch & Learn series from AIGA Raleigh
Things change fast in our industry, and it's important for us to grow our non-traditional design skills. This monthly lunch series brings local, "homegrown" experts together with designers for an intimate, indepth discussion of different skills or topics that will help designers add a few skills to their toolbox.
Homegrown is your opportunity to have lunch with the smartest people in town.
