Join Us This Week at the Leak

There are morning people, and there are night people; and then there are those that are still up from the night before. Regardless of which category you find yourself in, this Wednesday, September 8th your AIGA Jacksonville chapter is hosting another morning meet-up. Come share and discuss some of the latest projects fellow local designers of many different backgrounds bring in to present, or rather, leak.

The Morning Leak is that monthly morning mixer where you can start your day off with some fresh inspiration and a positive environment that happens to have breakfast and coffee available for purchase. Last month we had 19 people resist the snooze button, wipe the sleep from their eyes and make it out for a lively breakfast presentation and group discussion.

Karen Dessire kicked things off with her stylistic illustrated book of stories and characters. Eric Hinote stepped up next to show and discuss the process and the progress of one of his striking mural projects. Casie Simpson introduced the colorfully energetic logo / branding of The Contemporaries, a MOCA program for young professionals ages 21 – 40. Russel Quadros displayed and spoke about his entire process, including many alternatives noting what worked and didn’t work on the identity for KTP Healing. Lastly Katy Garrison introduced to the audience her stunning typographic imagery at the forefront of AIGA’s upcoming Membership Drive, The Always Summer Poster Show.

Be a part of this week’s Leak, whether you wish to show something or just observe what others bring in and join in on the conversation. We’ll be making our presence felt at Panera, located in the St. Johns Town Center, bright and early at 7:30am.

Those wishing to share a project, whether it be finished or in progress, drop us an email to to reserve your spot. Also, see others coming to join the morning at our event page on Facebook.

See you this week, at The Morning Leak!
