Happy New Year! We are looking forward to yet another wonderful year. Last year ended on a high note with our Bowl Your Socks Off social thanks to all who attended. We had a blast!
A huge thank you to The Iron Yard for hosting us yet again for our October community meeting. Before getting down to business, we kicked off with our usual event recaps.
Happy September! This month’s community meeting, held at the Iron Yard, had a great turnout with tons of new faces.
At approximately seven o’clock in the evening on August 2, 2016, the AIGA Orlando community meeting kicked off the current program year.
This month we spent time recapping this year’s Mentorship Program. This year’s program, which took place at Real Thread was a great success with over 250 people attending, 20 volunteers, 29 mentors and 25 mentees showcasing their months of hard work.
As many of us in the Orlando creative community were gearing up for Creative South, we first reconvened at the Iron Yard for this month's Community Meeting. The April meeting kicked off with a quick intro, after which we jumped right into the announcement of AIGA nationally launching its Spring Membership Drive.
AIGA Orlando’s March 2016 community meeting was a bit of a change in pace for us. Rather than being held in our usual location, we met in Envy Lab’s hip and cozy lounge area for a night of community fun and design talk.
Time to start practicing your Southern Drawl, y'all. On Tuesday, we learned that the Orlando Design Community will be very well represented at this year's Creative South conference in Columbus, Georgia.
Last week AIGA Orlando kicked off 2016 with a truly remarkable Community Meeting. These meetings are an effort to unite design in The City Beautiful - anyone is invited to come hear about what’s happening in the city and network with like-minded creatives.
Kicking things off with a 3-persona icebreaker as a ringmaster of an elderly circus, a used bubblegum sculptor, and a theater actor whose plays are all written in Pig Latin try to get to know each other. Though after a friendly opportunity of meeting new people, we had Victor as our key "guest speaker."
We’re 5 months in and still holding strong. AIGA Orlando’s fifth community meeting was held on October 6, with lots of new (and familiar) faces in the mix. As news of our community travels through the grapevine, we continue to see new people at each meeting and hope they spread the word and come back.
