Calling All Mentors — Yes, You!

Sign up for Discover Design 2012. 

We invite you to take the plunge and become a mentor for Discover Design! The program pairs high schoolers interested in graphic design with practicing professionals. Guided by co-chairs Casie and Natalie, mentoring pairs will complete a project over 8 sessions. 

This year’s task is to create a mobile app featuring Jacksonville’s insider locale’s. Teams can use illustration, photography, typography, or what-have-you to highlight favorite places that make our city unique. If you haven’t made an app before, don’t worry! We’ll help you through the entire process. 

Mentoring is a rewarding way to get involved with AIGA; meet fellow professionals, share your craft with an interested student, and accomplish something on Saturday mornings! Sessions are from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm on the following dates:

  • February  11, 2012
  • February 18, 2012
  • February 25, 2012
  • March  3, 2012
  • March 10, 2012
  • March 24, 2012 
  • March 31, 2012
  • April  7, 2012

We ask that you attend 6 of the 8 sessions to be a mentor.
