In more than 70 years of publishing the world’s most significant and influential creative works in Design, Advertising, Photography and Art/Illustration, Graphis has designated only 66 Design Masters. Among these are Toshiaki and Hisa Ide of IF Studio, New York.
AIGA Central PA and The Standard Group are proud to present: An intimate conversation and presentation with Design Masters Toshiaki and Hisa Ide as well as Associate Creative Director, Kumiko Ide and photographer and Art Director, Athena Azevedo, of IF Studio (IFStudioNY.com).
The event will also launch their latest work, the new Epic Eye – Volume 2. This evocative art and design print piece features the work of creative people from fashion, film, art music and science, illustrating the many ways design constructs a dialogue with the world around us.
Every attendee will receive a free copy of the new Epic Eye (valued at $50) with the price of admission.
But that's not all, AIGA Central Pennsylvania is proud to announce the creation of our Diversity in Design scholarship fund. This merit-based fund will provide Central Pennsylvania area students from under represented groups with financial assistance for pursuing their design education.
AIGA, on a national and local level, encourages diversity in design and programming. We, as an organization, recognize the lack of diversity within the field and beyond and strive to remedy that through our programming and community-funded opportunities, such as this scholarship.
All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the new Diversity in Design scholarship fund. Earn our applause and undying love by choosing a Gold ($50) or Platinum Ticket ($100). Go on, you know you want to...
