AIGA Orlando and GDSA have partnered this year and are excited to present Press for Progress! Join us at The Visual Arts Building at UCF on February 24th at 7:30 PM for a live screen-printing demonstration to pull your own iconic totes and posters featuring a beautiful design created by AIGA Orlando’s own Liana Mejia!
A portion of proceeds from Press for Progress will be donated to advocacy non-profit, Where Are the Black Designers?, an organization and central hub of black creatives whose goal is to bring awareness to AIGA’s 2019 Design Census results, stating that 3% of black designers make up the design workforce.
