OK, pop quiz.

1. D.C. has a vibrant indie design scene: true or false?
Answer: TRUE

2. Which of the following might describe a typical day in the life of a D.C. designer?

A. Moderating a panel at a graffiti art show, meeting a band on your record label for lunch, and making some logo sketches for that new wine bar opening down the street from your office.

B. Traveling the world taking photos of your world-famous dj friends on tour, filming a documentary about disarming land mines, and building a web site for an airline.

C. Curating a roaming art gallery, hosting a live-art “happening,” and just plain having fun.

D. All of the above.

Answer: D. All of the above.

Do any of the above apply to you? If it seems as crazy and far off as a moon landing, maybe you should ask yourself this: who says that designers can only be, well, designers? AIGA DC wants to let you in on a little secret: everything you need to break out of the mold is within your reach. And what’s more, you can find it all here in D.C. —if you know where to look.

Join us next week at an exclusive*, VIP event with practically unrestricted access to five of D.C.’s most progressive DIYers:

• Moderator Philippa Hughes of the Pink Line Project will give you the “in” on D.C.’s independent art scene
• David Fogel of Eighty Eight D.C. will let you in on how he brings art to life
• Jayme Mclellan of Civilian Art Projects has got the lowdown on what it takes to start a gallery
• Nick Pimentel and Brian Liu of ToolboxDC will rant about their uncompromising approach and the inspiration for their eclectic creative experiences, and will mix it up afterwards as the evening’s DJs, Yellow Fever.

The common thread between them? They all followed their passion and refused to be limited by how things are “done” in D.C. Don’t miss your chance to learn how you too can get a little soul in your life—and your design—without selling out.

Attendees at this event will be limited to 30—small enough to literally rub elbows with the panelists. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
