With the World on Fire

Join us for our upcoming event with AIGA President, Ashleigh Axios. Ashleigh will be joining us remotely from Washington D.C. to share her journey as a designer, social advocate, AIGA President, and former White House Creative Director. She’ll also be walking us through With the World on Fire, an insightful and information-packed talk on the big and small lessons of a designer who works to make positive social change during times when the world seems to be perpetually set on fire. Learn about some of the biggest global issues of our day and the various ways creatives, and anyone with heart, can adapt their thinking and practices to help enable change.
