Come join AIGA West Michigan for our annual community meeting on January 25th at The Ballroom @ CityFlatsHotel in Grand Rapids!
All are welcome to attend this special evening sponsored by Herman Miller and Ferris State University as we discuss what this past year brought to our community while looking forward to new things ahead. A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of our second Fellow Awards, the chapter’s highest accolade recognizing excellence in design and dedication to the design community.
This year, two amazing recipients will be honored for their design, education, and leadership contributions in West Michigan. They have made a significant impact in many lives – you might have worked alongside them at Herman Miller, been a student of theirs at Ferris State University, or utilized the West Michigan Graphic Design Archives – a resource aimed to excite, inspire, educate, and intrigue that this year’s recipients initiated in collaboration with many colleagues from the design, paper, printing, and education fields.
Our 2017 Fellow Award recipients are Barbara Loveland and Linda Powell, and we are excited to showcase not only their exceptional careers, but also their influence and guidance of so many other leaders in our community.
The Friends & Fellows event kicks off at 6:30pm with a cash bar, hors d'oeuvres, and music from AB. The presentations will begin at 7:15pm. AIGA members and nonmembers are welcome and attendees are encouraged to don their finest “after 5” attire. We are excited to spend the evening with you!
