#AIGADesignersTalk: Our first Twitter Chat!

Written by
August 4, 2015

On Wednesday, July 29, we joined the Twitter chat scene by starting our very own Twitter chat! We invited designers all throughout the AIGA network and beyond to chat about design, after dark, on the interwebs, and it was awesome. A few of our board members went analog and got together in person to host the chat at Goodfellas OTR.

On the analytics side, #AIGADesignersTalk was used 328 times, we had 38 people contributing to the conversation, an estimated reach of 42K, and we gained 32 new followers that day. More importantly, the conversation was great. We shared advice, our favorite tools, sources for inspiration, and why we chose design. We even talked about taking our favorite design legends out to dinner and where we would take them. All in all, the event was a great success and we’re looking forward to hosting another Twitter chat in the fall.

Here are some of our favorite tweets from the night:
Be sure to follow these awesome designers too!

@leslie_hiller: I’ve always wanted a creative job, and I love the creative problem solving aspect of being a designer.

@brisayswhaat: Network! Get to know other designers & understand their process. Stay hungry & don’t stop learning.

@keirdubois: Keep your writing skills sharp & regularly seek inspiration from outside the design world.

@heislockwood: Design isn’t art. It should be beautiful, but it’s about solving a problem.

@SergioAG10: My dude James White @Signalnoise… We get some hoagies and some 80’s metal bands like Man-o-War #metal

@romanolaa: I want to change the world through design, making a difference in lesser known places where it counts.

@hues_and_tints: simple. elegant. massimo. Massimo is an adjective right?

@DennisCheatham: Design ever completed? It’s never done, you just run out of time.
