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.

Something new is Sprowting Up

Sprowt, an “initiative to nurture emerging designers in our local design community” has launched in the Treasure Valley.

From their website:

What Is Sprowt?

Sprowt is an initiative to support emerging designers in their transition from university to a professional career. Currently, we’re gathering feedback from local graduates and employers and plan to use that data to develop educational resources for design students and recent graduates. Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming surveys and site developments!

Sprowt was recently launched by Justin Kuntz and Ryan Lascano, and we’ll be keeping an eye on it in the coming weeks and months.
