For the past six months or so I’ve been working with a great group of Colorado designers (including Fred Murrell, Craig Rouse, and Jason Otero) to develop the identity for the AIGA national conference, coming to Denver this October. I provided the design for the conference website, and am currently working with Sean and Todd at Day Job on a social networking application that should make it very easy for attendees to connect with others who share their interests.
Part of the goal of the conference identity is to provide a flexible framework that will allow others to present their ideas of “what’s next” in design. One opportunity for the sharing of ideas is available on the conference website now. Download the frame, add your ideas, and share them with the world. More ways to engage are coming in the future, but this is a pretty good starting place. We’re planning to share the results at the conference.
