Reception 6pm / Talk 7pm
Dick Patrick Studios
AIGA DFW continues our mission to call attention to the people who helped shape DFW’s design aesthetic, community and strength with our second volume of Seasoned Pros speakers. Each season, we'll be hearing from those with expertise, experience, personality and style that helped shape our city's design, advertising and interactive community. For the Winter Seasoned Pros speaker, it is our privilege to hear Alan Lidji share his story.
Also, during this event we will be celebrating AIGA's centennial year! We'll be kicking off our 100 sketchbooks project and you'll be able to sign up to be one of the first participants! Sketchbooks will be handed out at check in.
