So I went to a dope workshop today in Santa Monica that I found out about through AIGA. Marks of Desire, that was put on by TypeEd, was a great brush up on the analysis and keys to selecting/creating a logotype with 2 assignments and constructive critiques. Felt like I was back in Mr. Ybarra's class...but this time I was paying more attention. There was a well informed speaker who led some great discussions on people's work and guided our own discovery of what was working and what wasn't.
What I enjoyed about this event, was not only the rich content that feeds my interests, but the networking aspect and mingling amongst others that share this passion. This was my first AIGA event as a member(#designerd). I'm finding it super important to continue my education outside of school and push my design work every single day (yes, even on the weekends, be it a 8hr workshop or Skillshare). I've been saying, what they got on me in years, I'm gonna make it up in hours...and I'm sticking to it.
And of course I ran home to sign up for the next workshop on March 1st: Whisky Type - "effective label design and how to communicate a balance between heritage and substance through typography and negative space." Come Join Me!
