Opposites Attract: 2022 Winter Community Meeting

Science Says, “Opposites Attract”

Let’s test that theory! In the spirit of Valentine’s week, we’re playing matchmaker with six talented creative professionals from opposite ends of the design spectrum. Join AIGA CT for a community meeting where our talented speakers will be participating in “speed dating” sessions discussing the intimate details of their craft and industries.

Pen vs. Pixel

Topic: Process

Steve Habersang, a designer and illustrator who works with pen and ink, will face off against Daniel Sheridan, a designer, and letterer who creates magic with his tablet.

Agency vs. In-House

Topic: Collaboration

JP Flagg, Creative Director at Arc Worldwide, will discuss team structure and leadership with Rebecca Hansen, Creative Director at Kayak.

Print vs. Digital

Topic: Branding

Sam Becker, Director of Software Design at IDEO, will discuss the state of branding with Rietje Becker, Creative Director at Soulsight.

At our Community Meetings, you can also:

  • Learn about what AIGA Connecticut has been up to and get a peek at what’s around the corner for events & initiatives!
  • Talk back: Let us know what you need, what’s working, and what’s not.
  • Network with other CT creatives and AIGA Board Members
  • Share your ideas for improving our local design community.
  • Find out more about how you can get involved!

This community meeting will be conducted virtually, so feel free to bring your favorite snack or beverage. A zoom link will be provided via email 30 minutes before the meeting starts. Registration is required. Both Members and non-Members are welcome!
