Salon: Growing Big Ideas with Beth Singer

As creatives, it’s in our nature to continually ask “what if?" If you’re contemplating a big idea, but find yourself at a loss on how to proceed, this Salon is for you!


Join Beth Singer, former National Board member and past AIGA DC President, as she challenges us to use our talents to bring our own big ideas to life. We’ll talk about those all-important jumping-off points in your career or personal life, the journey which starts by projecting yourself into the future and working backward... and when to think bigger. To help you find potential collaborators for your ideas, a breakout session will be included.

Beth will also discuss examples from her own life, including how the AIGA DC Design Continuum Fund (DCF) scholarship grew to be a permanently funded endowment for college scholarships in art and design fields.

AIGA DC Salons are free, intimate roundtable discussions open to AIGA members only.  Check your AIGA membership status at before registering.

Beth founded Beth Singer Design (BSD) in the 80s to pursue her twin passions of great design and giving back to the community, and leads the firm’s work in print, digital, video, and live event spaces. Beth served for four years on the national board of AIGA, as well as the AIGA DC chapter board for 10 years. Her giving back also helped the founding of the AIGA Mentor Program with the public magnet school Duke Ellington School of the Arts and spearheaded the Design Continuum Fund (DCF). To date DCF has raised more than $200,000 and awarded over 25 scholarships, to encourage diversity in the profession and provide design careers for economically disadvantaged students.
