Building the future of design

One of our favorite times of the year has come and gone. The time of the year where seasoned professionals unselfishly give up their Saturday mornings to spend time with college students. But not just any college students. These students are not only AIGA members, but future senior designers, future creative directors, future entrepreneurs, future AIGA board members, the future of the design community here in Cincinnati and beyond. It was of course the time of the year for our annual senior portfolio day.

More than 80 creative professionals and graduating design & illustration students filled rooms at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Cramming in four 30-minute sessions of constructive feedback on design, layout, typography, and even presentation & speaking skills can be daunting. But these 80 plus people did it with a smile. Why? Because they loved every second of it. It’s always amazing to hear from students how much valuable feedback they received in just a few hours. Excitement filled the room when the top three students were presented with $1,000 scholarships from AIGA. We love hearing from professionals how much fun it is and how rejuvenating it is to see the excitement about design that they may have misplaced in their day to day work. Not only do we love hosting events like this, but it’s fun to get people excited about their community and giving back, even if it’s just for a few hours on a Saturday morning, building the future of design.
