In a faster and faster design world, our inspiration sources oddly seem to be spiraling into the same predictable, tired sources. Sometimes you have to look all the way back to see where we came from, and to be reminded of the incredible work our founders made. Get dirty with the Aaron Draplin and learn how to find incredible graphic treasures. See vivid examples, techniques, and spirited hotspots. Learn how to use them in your work with color, form, and typography, and ultimately, how to save American design from its bad self.

There are more designers in your neighborhood than you know. Coffee & Critique is a monthly meetup of designers to come meet their peers, share some work and get some feedback on their projects. This event is free and open to everyone; students, educators and professionals alike. Bring two pieces of work to share get meaningful feedback from everyone. Learn about each other, chapter events and industry news.
Bring some work! Digital work - Have the URL handy and we'll pull it up on our screen. Anything else, bring a .pdf on a flash drive. Bonus if you bring printed work (packaging, etc). Each person who wants to share some work is limited to no more then two pieces so we can keep things moving. Drink some coffee and really keep things moving! This event is free and open to everyone, members and non-members, but you must be a designer.
Introductions begin at 8AM (come early) and we'll wrap up at around 9AM.
