It has been almost six months since we began publishing “The
Weekly Wraparound.” We're pausing now to consider new ways of collecting and
sharing the best design stories with you, and we’d love to know: What have
you thought of this feature so far?
You can find
all past Wraparounds here. Have you enjoyed the list format with brief
blurbs and links? If so, what have you liked about it the most? Is there
another way of presenting this information you might prefer? Let us know in the comments! While
you’re at it, you might also share links to stories that have caught your eye this week.
As we explore our options, you can still receive
recommendations from us on Twitter @AIGAdesign
and in the “From the Blogs” boxes on the AIGA.org homepage and throughout the
Thanks in advance for your feedback! We look forward to
hearing from you, and we’ll be back soon.

Attendees will be invited to pick up a pen and create simple shapes, swirls, pictures and numbers that will be reproduced as color-in postcards for Peach’s Pen-Pal Project for Peach's Neet Feet.
