Design for good is an important movement in the global design community, but what exactly does it mean and how can you become a part of it? How does design thinking come into play when it comes to solving social problems?  How can you make an impact and still make a living? We are starting the conversation here in Seattle and want to invite you to become a part of it.

Join AIGA Seattle Wednesday October 15, 2014 at the Frye Art Museum, as we start to define what design for social change means in the Seattle design community. We are bringing together a multidisciplinary panel of graphic designers, strategists, business owners, and product designers to open up the conversation and share what it means for them in their professional lives.

Perspectives will be presented on funding self-initiated projects, working with non-profit clients, the importance of corporate social responsibility for large companies, running your own design firm focused on social change, leading an in-house creative department of a global non-profit, and product design that improves people's lives. We look forward to a lively Q&A following the panel.

Let’s start the conversation together.

Our panelists include:
Cornelius Brudi, PATH, Creative Director
Michael Ellsworth, CIVILIZATION, Founding Partner / Principal
Leslie Hale, Methodologie, Chief Strategy Officer
Masuma Henry, Artefact, Executive Director
Joel Meyers, Fuse IQ, Founding Partner and Director of Business Development

Gage Mitchell, Modern Species, Partner & Creative Director and AIGA Seattle President

Doors open at 6pm
Panel Begins at 6:30pm

Following the event, walk a couple blocks to the after party at Vito's for a chance to talk with the panelists further and make some new connections.
