AIGA will always play a role in inspiring designers and illuminating the practices of interesting and successful design professionals, educators and opinion leaders. The “AIGA Voices” series of webcasts features thoughtful and influential designers—including AIGA board members—speaking about a wide range of topics.
These sessions will offer the kind of diverse and stimulating presentations associated with AIGA conferences, with one key difference: An opportunity for participants to ask questions and chat with the presenters. Everyone is welcome to attend these sessions, which are free and open to the public.
