2017 AIGA Design Conference, Recap 2 of 3 : Julie Anixter, Marian Bantjes, Bob Dixon, Adam Turman, Betsy VardellOctober 24th, 2017 | by Donovan Beery
Justin Ahrens (Rule29 and Wheels4Water), Aaron Draplin (The DDC), Dallas Franklin (Neenah), Bill Moran (Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum), Brian Singer (Someguy), and Christine Taylor (Hallmark and POPMinded) discuss the first day of the 2017 AIGA Design Conference in Minneapolis.
In addition to the three podcast recaps from the AIGA National Conference I will be putting up this week, I also wrote a few blog posts documenting the trip for Neenah Paper again this year if you want to also see recaps in written and photo form:
- Craft Matters at the AIGA National Design Conference
- A UNIQUE Market and a Studio on Fire at the AIGA Design Conference
- Lotería and a Minneapolis mural signify the closing of another great AIGA Design Conference
What a great event, and thanks again for listening! Enjoy.
In our final recap of the AIGA Head, Heart, Hand conference in Minneapolis, we start in the exhibit hall by speaking to Brian French and Jerry French of French Paper, and Jamie Saunders of Neenah Paper.
Just outside of that area, we find Cate White finishing up her final project for Command X (thrilled to see someone from Omaha in the competition – and happy to say she made the final round of three. Way to go, Cate!), and thus had the opportunity to get the thoughts from a contestant while in the middle of the competition. We also got some input from her mentor for the event, AIGA Medalist Rick Valicenti.
Finally, we wrap up our event coverage with someone who has been in the Minneapolis, and AIGA scene, Joe Isaak.
Thanks for following our covereage of this great event, and we look forward to the next one in 2015.
Well, the AIGA conference in Minneapolis lived up to the hype. In the first (of two) recaps I recorded while there. I speak with a stellar cast of attendees, speakers, national co=presidents, and more. That’s right, we bring in Justin Ahrens, Drew Davies, Stanley Hainsworth, Jim Moran, Tom Nemitz, and Emily Potts to get their thoughts on the first day of conferencing in the Twin Cities.
As for my thoughts, I blogged them all over at Neenah Paper’s Against the Grain, and you can find them here:
- More Eye Candy and Eggs from the AIGA Conference
- Head, Heart, Hand, Mountain Dew and Drew
- Good Weather, More Letterpress, Lots More Command X Remaining at Head, Heart, Hand
- Jucy Lucys and a Studio on Fire Tour at Head, Heart, Hand
- Tacos are the most important part of Head, Heart, Hand
