AIGA 2017 June News // Passion Projects & June After Hours


Project Passion

Thursday, June 15 | 11:59 pm CT

Project Passion, an annual exhibition showcasing designers’ self-initiated work, is looking for submissions for 2017. This year's theme is collaborative passion projects and aims to highlight how creatives are working together to pursue mutual obsessions/fascinations—outside of client support and feedback. Submitted work will be reviewed by well-known designer duos Katie Kirk and Nathan Strandberg from Eight Hour Day, Jessica Carpenter and Tad Carpenter from Carpenter Collective, and Richard Roche and Jonathan Black from Cast Iron Design

Organized by Minnesota State University, Mankato design faculty and AIGA Minnesota, Project Passion is a juried show. The deadline to submit is June 15. Submitted work will be reviewed, and selections made by August 1. The exhibit will open in September. For more information, process details, and to submit work, visit projectpassiondesign.com

The Boardroom Office Hours

“As an entrepreneur and specialist, I spend a lot of time in my own headspace. Most of my days consist of advising others. Speaking with Bob Lowrance was the self-care as a business owner I didn’t even know I needed. He has such a dynamic experience base, and a rapid-fire rate. After the short time I spent with Bob, I left with my head spinning with innovative ideas for my business.”
- Megan on Office Hours: Bob Lowrance, Northen Compass Group, LLC

Businesses need feedback, counsel, and new information to thrive. The Boardroom created Office Hours to supply free consultation with an otherwise expensive professional. Get all the feedback, counsel and information you need, with one quick stop at The Boardroom. With Office Hours, we identify a common business need among The Boardroom members, then find a local professional in the community who can facilitate that need. Boardroom members are given a chance to meet for free with the Office Hours Pro and have their questions answered.
