Creative Coffee: Design Forum

AIGA Idaho is hosting their next Creative Coffee meetup on Friday, February 3rd (sorry for the short notice) from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. at Moon’s Kitchen in downtown Boise.  From the event’s description on Facebook:

Our next Creative Coffee meetup will be a open discussion on the state of the Design industry and community in Boise. Joining the discussion will be Ricky Lyman from Scentsy, Kristy Weyhrich of W Design and Justin Kuntz of Creative Soapbox. The format will be somewhat open, with opportunity for discussion on a wide range of topics effecting us as designers.

This event is free (you pay for your food) and welcome to all. Seating is limited so come early to get a spot. Also, if you have any questions you would like to submit, feel free to post them here on the wall.

If you’d like to RSVP or if you have questions, see the event page on Facebook for more.

Coffee Morning – Feedback Needed

Yes I know, Coffee Morning has been noticeably absent lately.  For a variety of reasons, of which I’ll not go into at this point.

Before I try and schedule another one, I have questions for you, dear readers:

  • Is there still an interest in Coffee Morning, and the casual face-to-face get-together concept?
  • Would more people attend if it was held at a different time, i.e. after work rather than first thing in the morning?

Or, has Coffee Morning run simply run its course?

Leave your answers in the comments on this post, and thanks in advance for the feedback.

June Coffee Morning

Why? Because it has just been too long.

When?  Friday,  June 26th.  7:30ish – 9:00ish.
Of course, you’re welcome to stop by any time in between.

Yes, I know it’s been too long since we’ve done a Coffee Morning.  So let’s just go ahead and remedy that situation right now.  Pencil in the morning of Friday, June 26th for the next edition.

As usual, we’ll meet at Java in downtown Boise, corner of 6th & Main.

Coffee Morning

It’s about time to do it again.

The next Coffee Morning is scheduled for Friday, April 17th.

And, since it’s been a while since we last did this, here’s a quick reminder of what Coffee Morning is all about:

What is a Coffee Morning, you ask? Well, in a nutshell, it’s a loosely organized gathering, where people come together for coffee and conversation. There’s no agendas, no presentations – just an opportunity for people to chat, share ideas, and learn from one another.

All the details you’ve come to expect:

Date:  Friday, April 17th
Time:  7:30 am – 9:00 am (roughly – you’re welcome to show up anytime in between)
LocationJava Downtown, 6th & Idaho, Boise

Any questions in the mean time? Feel free to leave a comment here.

February Coffee Morning

Well, January came and went without a Coffee Morning making the calendar. So what do you say we try not to let that happen again in February?

With that in mind, the February edition of Coffee Morning is scheduled for this coming Friday, February 20th.

Details are as follows:

Date: Friday, February 20th
Time: 7:30 am – 9:30 am (you’re welcome to show up any time in between)
Location: Java Downtown, 6th & Idaho, Boise ID

For those needing a refresher, Coffee Morning is a loosely organized event that gives folks (in this case) in the marketing and advertising industry a chance to get together and chat about whatever topics may come up. There is no formal agenda, no planned speakers or presentations. Just a chance to get together and chat.

Any questions – feel free to send them along.

December Coffee Morning

Yes, there will be a Coffee Morning this month. It’s going to be on Friday, December 19th – same Bat-time, same Bat-channel. Or, in English:

Location: Java6th & Idaho, Boise, ID
Date: Friday, December 19th
Time: 7:30(ish) AM – 9:30(ish) AM

As usual, anyone and everyone is welcome. Topics of discussion vary from month to month, but there never seems to be a shortage.

Oh, and if you’d like to RSVP for it, you can do so here.

No Coffee Morning This Month

Alas, the month of November will come and go without a Coffee Morning (well, at least not one that has been scheduled through here).

Given the schedule of the past few months, this month’s Coffee Morning would have fallen either this Friday or next Friday. And since there isn’t anything scheduled for this week, and next week will be the day after Thanksgiving, November is just shot.

So, what should we do? Try and schedule something on a Friday morning early in December? A different day of the week? I’m all ears. Leave your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.
