Being as involved as I am in AIGA Central Pennsylvania means I have a huge AIGA family spanning the entire country, with some of those folks being as close as Philadelphia and Blue Ridge.
I try to make it out to the Philadelphia chapter as often as I can for their events, and most recently, I was asked to participate on their panel for design undergrads! I started my design journey in Philadelphia, before transferring to Millersville and moving to the Lancaster.
I was thrilled to moderate the panel, which included four Philadelphia-based designers ranging from a year out of school to six. The all-day event also included mock portfolio reviews, workshops and impromptu portfolio reviews by the panelists and myself.
