AIGA LA: 2015 Year in Review

With 2016 right around the corner, we want to thank our fantastic members, volunteers, partners, sponsors supporters for a year full of energy and engagement. 

Legendary designer Roger Black packed the Last Bookstore in April for his talk on the future of publication design. 

For our Business Matters series, Emily Cohen flew in from NYC to chat staffing strategies, Jeremiah Gardner caused a stir with his Lean Branding talk, and Daniel Gjøde traveled all the way from Denmark to share why he thinks culture beats strategy.

The summer rocked with Music + Design, bringing together Creative Directors of major international record labels and the illustrious Jeri Heiden conversing on the intersection of design and music. We took Student Portfolio Day to new heights at the Steelcase showroom, and launched our first-ever Mentorship Program, Evolve.

Our Women in Leadership event was a sellout, as Jessica Hische and Su Matthews Hale joined Louise Sandhaus and Zelda Harrison to address issues facing professional women today.

In October, we brought volunteer designers together to benefit local non-profits during our 3rd annual Design for Good 24-hour Blitz. (Thanks, as always, to the excellent Taproot Foundation!)

And let’s not forget our ongoing SPARK networking events and members-only Studio Tours.

Clever Creative did an amazing job designing our promo artwork the first half of the year, and we we’re excited to work with Ferroconcrete as our new Agency of Record for 2016/17. 

And, as always, big ups to our partners and sponsors Adobe, Typecraft, Coloredge, The Fulcrum Agency, and Media Temple

Those are just some of the highlights of 2015, and we’re planning an even bigger 2016. Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know about upcoming events.

See you there!
