Members urge AIGA to take long view, build a future for design, designing and designers
As you may recall, at our group meeting, on Assessment Day you responded to questions from the AIGA about how you viewed the organization from a student perspective. And since I was invited to participate in the Iowa AIGA chapter-organized roundtable on 8 April in Des Moines, I used the opportunity to bring your feedback and ideas for the organization. Please see the Insight article to see how your responses compare to others in the AIGA. Thank you for participating—the Iowa AIGA Board was impressed with what you had to say!

After School Special: Advice for Emerging Designers
Lynda Decker of Decker Design has created a great presentation that will give you helpful and valuable advice on making the transition from school to work. To view it, visit: After-School-Special.

If you’re in or near Denver this summer, perhaps consider, Image Space Object 6: Tools for Transformation, Denver, August 6–9, 2009. For more information, visit: Image Space Object. Small teams of participants and studio mentors work together to create multi-dimensional environments, human interactions and brand strategies. User-centered narratives serve as a starting place for the design of graphic, interaction, product and environmental experiences. Research, modeling, team ideation and experiential prototyping are employed throughout the three days to produce tangible final presentations that can be brought back to work and used with your design teams.
