REDUCED COMPLEXITY AND THE NEW PREMIUM
Design Evolution with Mike Milley
THU, SEP 15, 7–9:30PM | PIVOTAL LABS
As the world becomes more hectic, consumers are increasingly willing to pay more for experiences that minimize the clutter of life. Mike Milley (Director of Creative Consulting, BMW Group’s Designworks) will share his insights about the principles designers will need to meet this growing demand for simplification.
A sister event to our Business Matters series, Design Evolution leans away from known paths of career and business development to address the spectrum of new demands and requirements on designers and the design field.
WOMEN’S DESIGN SALON: TRAILBLAZER
THU, SEP 22, 6:30–9:30PM | THE BOXCAR
Trailblazers are inspiring. They face fear head first, take creative risks, and pioneer trends. But at one time, they were in third grade. At one time, they went to prom. What created the drive to take unique risks?
Jihan Zencirli embodies everything about being a trailblazer. Learn about her passion journey from Seattle to LA and her creation of brilliant and internationally recognized balloon sculptures as she shares an evening of conversation and insight with Chelsea Sonksen (Founder, Bossladies Magazine).
WINE & TYPE PAIRING
THU, SEP 15, 6:30–9:30PM | OPEN HOUSE CREATIVE
1602 BABCOCK STREET, COSTA MESA, CA 92627
Pairing typefaces is a lot like wine tasting: making educated and inspired choices where the history, personality and unique details of each flavor bring out the best of its complement, creating an experience worth savoring.
Join AIGA OC for some type “pairing and pouring” in an evening of type pairing and wine tasting. Learn the tips and tricks for pairing type in a design context—classifications, character, superfamilies and more. This palatable event offers a perfect balance of education and networking for designers of all skill levels and is taught by Michael Stinson of TypeEd.
