2017 AIGA Design Conference Oct 12 – Oct 14, 2017
1301 Second Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55403
AIGA will hold its annual Design Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 12-14, 2017. This year’s conference theme “community, connection, and career journey” will bring together an incredible gathering of creatives from all walks of life.
“For more than 30 years, AIGA Design Conference has served as an epicenter for our diverse community of professionals to meet, exchange ideas, and grow the design industry,” commented Julie Anixter, AIGA executive director. “Our community is our most valuable asset. The strength within our community is fueled by making sure that designers have the competencies to make an impact on business, industry, and society. This year, we’re really focusing on career journeys and the myriad of possibilities evolving out of design’s ever-changing landscape.”
During the three-day conference, AIGA will provide more than 17 design workshops to deliver inspiration and knowledge within a hands-on learning environment. New this year, AIGA will launch its conference Match program where seasoned designers will connect with first-timers to mentor, guide, and enable them to get the most out of the conference.
Roundtables featuring industry-leading designers will discuss the shifting landscape of design and offer practical ways to convert inspiration into stunning new integrations. Conversations will explore commitment to leadership, design excellence, impact, and equity-the core values of AIGA.
Come dance in the purple rain, soak up the inspiration, and invigorate your creative consciousness as your favorite design icons and creative visionaries take the stage in Minneapolis. Let’s make Prince proud.
