Crafting the Sounders Experience

AIGA SEATTLE invites you to join us for a panel discussion with the Seattle Sounders FC In-House Design team — and to watch their final match of the season!

Be a part of this insightful glimpse into the inner workings of this in-house design studio as our panelists shed some light on successes and common struggles faced when designing for a professional soccer team across a wide range of mediums and touchpoints.

Coming from one of Seattle’s most celebrated sports teams, our panelists will dive deep into a variety of design topics. Major themes may include maintaining brand consistency, defining culture, managing workflow and inspiration discovery.

Sounders FC In-House Design Team Panelists

  • Ty Kreft, Senior Graphic Designer
  • Claire DeRocco, Graphic Designer
  • Dan Beltran, Graphic Designer

The event will take place within one of the spacious CenturyLink Field loft spaces. Your tickets and wristbands to access the loft will be available on the day of the match. Advance Purchase Required. No same-day tickets will be available. Tickets are transferrable but not refundable. 

This event is meant to be an engaging and informative yet casual discussion helping to provide support, resources and inspiration for the many in-house designers working here in our creative community. Come join the conversation and then watch as the Sounders FC go head-to-head with the Colorado Rapids!

AIGA Seattle would like to thank Event Chair, Ellie Kemery, for volunteering to help create this event.
