As part of our Mentorship Program, AIGA Arizona is excited to host a series of intimate dinners with local designers. The objective of each Dinner with a Designer is to bring together a small group of established professionals, designers with fewer than 10 years of experience, students, and educators to discuss the evolving state of our profession, lend advice, and share meaningful experiences.
Each dinner represents an opportunity for designers, old and new, to celebrate the past, present and future of design. Through these organized dinners, we hope to provide our community an opportunity to better understand our roots as designers and plan for the success of tomorrow's design leaders.
Dinner invitations are extended first to those who have expressed an interest in the Mentorship Program through AIGA Arizona. Any open seats at the table are will then be available to the entire Phoenix design community.
Don Newlen and Jami Pomponi Alire of Fervor Creative
The cost to attend this special dinner is $15.00.
