Join us in celebrating past AIGA LA President and 2007 Fellows Award winner, Mick Hodgson. As chapter president, Mick helped make LA one of the country’s most successful and trailblazing chapters. He was later awarded the Fellows, and his partnership with Clive Piercy at Ph.D produced what is regarded as some of the most memorable and influential LA design of the period.
A gallery of design work will be on display with commemorative toasts from past AIGA presidents and LA design legends such as Agustìn Garza, John Clark, and more and special guests toast and share stories of one of our cities most endeared designers. A commemorative enamel pin designed by Mick Hodgson exclusively for the event will be given to all attendees. Join us for drinks and hors d’oeuvres by Border Grill, and celebrate LA’s great design community with friends and colleagues. Tickets are extremely limited, register today!
