The first chapter-organized Design Summit took place May 17–19, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Phoenix Design Summit is an extension of AIGA’s Design For Good initiative, which aims to ignite, accelerate and amplify design-driven social change. As part of a three-day intensive workshop, participants from all over the country worked toward designing solutions for problems in Phoenix. Teams collaborated on developing long-term solutions for issues related to after-school health and arts programs.
Mark Dudlik is Executive Director of Lost Creature, as well as the Director of Operations / Graduate Advisor for the
Masters In Branding program at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
