Calling All Toy Makers

The holidays are almost here and that means one thing for AIGA Jacksonville… The Third Annual Designers in Toyland event is just around the corner!

This year’s event takes place at The Art Center in Downtown Jacksonville Friday, December 2 at 6:30 p.m. But before we can gather and check out the cool creations of local design professionals and artists we need your help.

If you love toys, make one (or two, or three). Participate in this unique exhibit by creating a toy from scratch or by adding to an existing one. All proceeds go to Discover Design, AIGA Jacksonville’s high school mentoring program that introduces students to careers in the design field.

Sign up by Friday, November 25. Toy drop off is Wednesday, November 30.
