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.
AIGA Idaho is celebrating this semester’s graduating designers with a graduation celebration at Pitchers and Pints in downtown Boise.
More about the event:
An AIGA Event to show support for this semesters graduating designers. We think that the professional hour at the portfolio event dose not allow the student or professionals enough time to really get to know each other. So lets have some beers and rub elbows a little!
Debbie Millman is President of the Design Division of Sterling Brands, and President of AIGA, the professional association for design. She has worked in the design business for over 25 years, including nearly 15 years at Sterling Brands.
Additionally, Millman is the author of three books:
AIGA Idaho will be screening LEMONADE in Boise on Wednesday, November 10th at the WaterCooler in downtown Boise. A social hour will begin at 6:00 p.m. with the screening starting at 7:00 p.m.
The screening is free to those who would like to attend, but a suggested $5 donation is recommended. Proceeds from the film screening will be given to the filmmakers, to help with with their latest project LEMONADE: Detroit.
For those long-time readers, you may remember that we’ve mentioned LEMONADE in the past, and you may have even had a chance to watch part or all of it online. Regardless, it’s a film that is worth seeing again, and a great way to support the efforts of Erik Proulx and company.
Carew Co, fresh off their third anniversary, has added Thomas Walsh to their staff as a designer. He’s a graduate of Boise State University with a BFA in Graphic Design, and has been an AIGA member since 2007.
Congratulations Thomas, and congratulations to Carew Co. on the latest milestone.
During this spring semester Students have prepared a portfolio which they going to use to enter the professional job market. Students have also participated in revising and editing their existing work. Many students have also added new work. A key component to this process is selecting an appropriate presentational format, and developing self-promotional products and strategies. And now “finally” they are sharing their finished portfolios with the professional design community.
The show is scheduled from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., with 5:00 – 6:00 serving as the Professionals’ Hour, and 6:00 – 9:00 open to the public.
