Who are You?: Designing person, place, and purpose.
Design rests with the individual crafting the work. And whether physical or virtual, the place and purpose of design should inform its creator, and vice versa. In his talk, Craig Welsh will explore one of the main tenants of the design process, and his unique understanding of it.
Copies of his book "Design:Portfolio; Self-promotion at its best" from Rockport Publishers will be available. Published in June 2013, the book features work from 100+ designers/studios around the world.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Presentation begins at 7pm. Light refreshments will be available.
Prior to the lecture, the unexpected design work of Go Welsh, a Lancaster, PA-based studio, visits AIGA Philadelphia's SPACE gallery.
