Save the Dates for a Blockbuster Spring!

AIGA SB has a fantastic event calendar coming up in Spring 2016. More details will come as the event dates get closer, so stay tuned, but we thought you’d like to see what’s on the horizon for our chapter:

Wed. 3/9 – Verdin Marketing: The Emotional Side of a Rebrand

Ever feel like more of a therapist than a designer? Walking a client through a new design can be harder than you’d think. Bet you didn’t know a career in design would also require skills in counseling. Will you be ready? Join us in San Luis Obispo for a presentation by Verdin Marketing’s Ashlee Akers (VP of Client Services) and Megan Condict (Art Director) on how to lead your clients through the process of brand transformation.

Sat. 4/16 – Portfolio Day 2016: Your Work, Your Story

Students and young creative professionals: get your BEST work critiqued by creative professionals at AIGA SB’s 8th annual Portfolio Day! This perennially popular half-day event returns once again to Brooks Institute in Ventura, where a slate of superstars will be on hand to offer tips to hone your craft & real-world advice on starting your career.

Registration for these events will open about a month before each date. AIGA SB is putting the final touches on at least three more great events between now and mid-June—so you literally don’t know the half of it—but you will soon, so stay tuned!
