Bright and early yesterday morning AIGA members gathered once again for a hearty helping of creative inspiration. Five presenters, fueled with enthusiasm and likely copious amounts of coffee, dazzled us with not only great design but education as well.
Theresa Lopez kicked things off, giving a great demo on the newfangled interactive tools in InDesign CS5.
Next, David Montgomery unveiled his latest experiment in animation— a wildly colorful kaleidoscope of photographed dragonflies set to an entrancing soundtrack by After The Bomb, Baby.
Aerien Kloske gave an informative presentation on the ADDY Awards Competition, listing the benefits, how to submit work, and showcasing award winning work.
Then, Stephanie Soden stepped up to the plate and showed us that Power Point Presentations can be “purdy” as well as functional.
Finally, we were invited to hear Karen Kurycki relate her experiences and illustration process through her newly published work for The Washington Post.
If you missed out this week be sure to join us next month for another inspirational gathering at The Morning Leak! If you’d like to share a project, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your slot. See you next month!
