Wrap Up: AIGA Head, Heart, Hand

AIGA’s Head, Heart, Hand Conference may have just wrapped up (thank you for following my previous posts from the conference on Against the Grain), but it left many a memory, and a lot of inspiration in it’s path.

More Eye Candy and Eggs from the AIGA Conference

And with that slide last night, the AIGA Head, Heart Hand Conference was kicked off by Ric Grefe. It may be early in the event, but it already has more of an eye-candy vibe in the presentations than the design thinking talks of Phoenix in 2011.   You know it’s going to be a conference […]
