Sold Out* Creative Review

In the spirit of serving life-long learners, AIGA DC brings you 2018 Creative Review. Whether you’re a practicing designer looking for fresh perspective, or a student preparing to enter the professional world, this Creative Review is for you. Take this opportunity to meet with some of DC’s most seasoned creative professionals to advance your career, as well as your portfolio.

This year we’re excited to have Bonnie Siegler as our guest speaker! Bonnie was voted as one of the 50 most influential designers working today by Graphic Design USA. She will also be signing copies of her new book, “Dear Client,” which will be available for purchase at the event.

The conversation will be moderated by Liz Ott. Liz brings over 15 years of client service, strategy, design, and technology experience to her role as Director of Client Engagement at Threespot. Her in-house and agency tenures allow her to excel in managing both the big picture and the minute details. She is responsible for delivering strategic guidance, developing and maintaining relationships, and helping a diverse roster of clients including UN Environment Programme, National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), The Pew Charitable Trusts, Planned Parenthood, and the U.S. Department of State deliver on their missions.

Following Bonnie’s presentation, you’ll meet one-on-one with a creative professional to review your work, and spend time with your creative community.

This event is open to working professionals and students.
