AIGA D.Talks

In 2009 AIGA San Francisco will launch a series of discussions on the business of design called “D.Talks.” Throughout the year the seminars will present practical information about current trends in the design profession as well as enable a more robust dialogue within our community.

Get practical advice on how to re-invent yourself, your industry, and your career to make it in the new economy.

Moderated by former AIGA SF vice president and design strategist Josh Levine, the discussion will include a panel of design professionals and employment industry experts who will examine the new economy and explore the best strategies to find the work you want in difficult times.

Light refreshments will also be served before the seminar. RSVP today and check out the topics to be presented throughout 2009.
