This past weekend, we had a great opportunity to host AIGA Atlanta‘s 2017″Rise Up” Mentoring kick-off event. The event pairs mentors with mentees in the design community in various fields to share information, get to know each other, and be inspired. About 60 guests attended and we were lucky to hear a presentation by
Graphic Design legend/AIGA Medalist Ken Carbone who talked about the influence of mentorship on his career and had some advice for the mentors and mentees. AIGA contributors helped to make the event run smoothly and answer questions about involvement in the program. Shout out to Alina Shafii, 2017 event chair, and Dallas Franklin, 2016 chair. We can’t wait to hear what this year brings to the design world in Atlanta!
