Our Design Week was such a success last year, AIGA Triad NC decided to spread the fun out for the entire month of October and we’re declaring it Design Month! It’s going to be an exciting time for our creative community, and we have some great events throughout the month to recharge your batteries, along with some amazing community design events. Show your support and join us for one or all of the month’s events. Activities include a student kick-off gathering, a digital brush workshop with Kyle T. Webster in High Point, an interactive talk with Kyle Lambert in Greensboro, the U360 Print Design Competition exhibit in Winston-Salem, and the Winston-Salem Studio Tour.
