LOS ANGELES, CA – March 29, 2018 Incase, design-driven bag and accessory brand for today’s creatives, and the Los Angeles chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, today announced a partnership to empower the next generation of creatives by supporting their productivity and creativity through exclusive experiences, resources and benefits to the Los Angeles creative community.
Incase lives at the intersection of technology and lifestyle, delivering solutions tailored to meet the demands of today’s creatives. Over the next year, Incase will strengthen its relationship with AIGA LA’s creative communities by building meaningful, engaging experiences with widely-recognized creatives and professionals to cultivate inspiring ideas and insight across the association’s diverse network.
As part of the collaboration, the AIGA LA chapter will partner with Incase to launch CaseStudies™, a new platform where industry leaders converge to empower the next generation of designers, photographers and innovators of all mediums. Hosted at the new Incase flagship store in Downtown Los Angeles, each CaseStudies™ event includes interactive, experiential speaking engagements that catalyze creativity and keep the community inspired. Through the partnership, three CaseStudies™ events will be co-hosted with the Los Angeles chapter of AIGA, offering their members exclusive access to connect and engage with a greater network of peers, experts, and industry leaders.
“By partnering with Incase, our chapter acknowledges the continued need to recognize intersections between technology, creativity, and design,” says Amanda Hovest, President of AIGA Los Angeles.
“In 2018, AIGA Los Angeles is celebrating our 35th anniversary as a chapter. We’re working to respect the rich history and legacy of Southern California design while maintaining relevance within a rapidly changing design culture. We are thrilled by the opportunities this partnership offers to inspire and support the creative community.”
“Supporting creatives has been a pillar of Incase since day one and CaseStudies™ is the progression of that ideal for us,” says Mike Quinones, Global Creative Director, Incase. “We’re excited to curate this live event platform in partnership with AIGA LA that connects inspirational leaders with the aspirational next generation. Our goal is to create moments, small or large, that will spark the big ideas that lead to dynamic and disruptive solutions in a creative way.”
Through 2018 and early 2019, Incase will support new and current AIGA LA members with exclusive access to product discounts and promotions. Incase will also offer career opportunities to Los Angeles chapter members as available through the AIGA LA Job Board.
