Event: AIGA design conference-Denver

Aiga Conference

The “NEXT” Aiga design conference kicks off Oct 11th and runs through the 14th. Pretty solid line up of speakers including, Michael Bierut, Steven Heller, Tobias Frere-Jones, Ed Fella, Ellen Lupton,Scott Stowell and a ton of other design heavyweights. The conference will be addressing the relevance of design in a changing world as well the role of the designer within it.
Also for those of you that haven’t seen the Helvetica film yet there will be a screening followed by Q&A with the director, Gary Hustwit and film stars Michael Bierut, Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones.

Speaking of the Helvetica film… It will be showing in the San Francisco area at the Yerba Buena Center for the arts Oct.5th – 7th. I tried to get tickets to the opening night but it was all sold out. I had to settle for a later showing.. oh well. Anyone else rolling through?
