Join AIGA Los Angeles and national AIGA board member Kevin Perry, from Struck, for a high-energy, grassroots evening dedicated to AIGA Get Out the Vote initiative. Get Out the Vote is a civic engagement initiative designed to wield the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 general election, as well as local elections to come.
We’ll not only explore ways designers can make a meaningful contribution to society, we’ll set aside some time to take action. You’ll be invited to contribute non-partisan posters to the 2016 collection by collaborating with diverse array of designers, thinkers and influencers.
You’ll learn rapid brainstorming tools to help you ideate your poster design, get feedback from the group, and celebrate LA’s contribution to the national effort in increasing voter participation.
For our third Business Matters event of the year, Maria Giudice (VP Experience Design, Autodesk) joins AIGA LA to share a keynote presentation about the Rise of the Design Executive Officer (DEO)—leaders who understand the transformative power of design and embrace its traits and tenets to command in times of change.
After the keynote, Arturo Perez (CEO, Kluge Interactive) will moderate a discussion into the traits that have made Maria such a successful DEO, from selling her design agency, Hot Studio, to being a Director of Product design for Facebook, who acquired her company, to her latest challenge as VP of Experience Design for Autodesk where she manages 350 designers.
Struggling with work-life balance? Join as we discuss how and why boundaries are healthy and necessary for a well-rounded, happy life.
Joni Pratte, a creative leader at MATTEL, will moderate a discussion with two of LA’s most well-known dream chasers, UNIQUE’S Sonja Rasula and CREATE & CULTIVATE’S Jaclyn Johnson.
Following the discussion, attendees will engage in round table sessions to connect with fellow participants around the topics of self-promotion, work-life integration, finance, networking, client relations, and other topics relevant to participants.
Join us Friday, June 24 for Evenings at the Loft Session 10, LA’s top design salon featuring a new theme exploration with every event. This Evening’s theme is on Design Pairings, where we explore the nuances and challenges of pairing the right teammates in order to successfully meet business goals and objectives.
In the spirit of Evenings, the night will be filled with a variety of delightful pairings, including food and drinks, and a special pairing game, brought to you by our friends at Onward Search.
Creative Directors looking to successfully choose and onboard new team members and Designers who want to sync up with broader team should come to this event.
