We’ve been busy here as of late. It’s an exciting time for the AIGA Houston chapter and lots of great things are in the works.
We have a newly expanded and energetic board of directors hard at work to help bring the design and creative community closer together and bring inspiration and resource to the creative professionals that call Houston home. This new board reflects the many diverse facets of the design community in Houston; studio and agency designers, art directors, studio owners, letterpress revivalists, inhouse creatives and managers, digital strategists, mobile app develepers, social media gurus and freelancers.
A lot of work has been going on behind to scenes to figure out how to better communicate with and engage with our members, volunteers, supporters and sponsors. We’ve recently relaunched our chapter site (courtesy of the iKit developed by Winfield & Co) and are expanding our reach deeper into social and mobile. We’re also looking to create more meaningful experiences IRL and our programming directors are working very hard to bring a roster of events (big and small) to this great city of ours.
Also, since AIGA Houston is a volunteer based organization, everyone involved with the chapter is doing this in their free time. There are many reasons why they do so but in the long term; enjoyment, personal and professional development, and creative inspiration are the common themes that comes up time and again. Also for those looking to network and get in touch with the creative pulse of Houston, volunteering is a great fast track.
