6pm Reception / 7:15 Speaker
AIGA DFW continues our mission to call attention to the people who helped shape DFW’s design aesthetic, community and strength with our Seasoned Pros speaker series. Each season, we’ll be hearing from those with the expertise, experience, personality and style that helped shape our city’s design community. For the Spring Seasoned Pros speaker, we are honored to have Doug May of May & Co. share his wisdom:
Uncertainty warrants creativity.
For over three decades, Doug May has worked on design assignments for numerous clients ranging from The Washington Opera to Zebco Fishing. He and his firm May & Co. have received numerous awards for creative excellence from professional organizations and international competitions, including Communication Arts, D&AD and Graphis, CIO Magazine, CA Interactive, Graphis New Media, the Web Marketing Association. A native Texan, Doug holds design degrees from the University of North Texas and Art Center College of Design. He began his career in New York in 1980 before returning to Dallas to eventually open his own design office. Doug was honored as an AIGA Fellow in 2011 by the DFW Chapter, for his contribution to the North Texas design community.
Join us as at our next Seasoned Pros AIGA/DFW talk, as Doug examines how it has become more challenging today for a communications design practice to innovate and add economic value in this age of uncertainty. Doug says, “Our design community must strive for a more complete understanding of its value. Creative minds have much more to offer business and society at large than aesthetics alone. We need to identify and address the obstacles that are restricting the creative community’s full economic potential”.
