Just to lighten the mood, let’s talk about AIGA! I’ve never heard of AIGA until my Writing for Artists Class with Ms. Beach. She talks about it so highly and so admirably (almost every class), and after doing my own research, would love to join that community when I start working professionally as a Graphic Designer. The more I hear about AIGA, the more convinced that I NEED to join and will join. I am a HUGE NPR fan and would love to work for NPR one day and hope to work for a company like this in the future. It just made me so proud to know that NPR’S branding team takes part in AIGA and won four ADDY awards last year FYI- The ADDY Awards is the world’s largest advertising competition with over 50,000 entries annually. What an accomplishment!
