October 2016 Events: Workshops Galore


Peer Review

Monday, October 3
BP Energy Center
6 - 8 p.m.
900 E Benson Blvd. | Anchorage, AK 99501
Members: FREE, Students: FREE, Nonmembers: $10

Got a finished project you’re still not 100% or a work in progress you’re stuck on? Bring them to our first-ever Peer Review!

Peer Review is an informal gathering for professional, aspiring, and student designers to get critical feedback on their work. Peer Review is also a chance to work on talking about your work, and giving a peer valuable feedback. Each participant will present their project, give some background, then share why they chose the direction they did. Your fellow designers will then give direct feedback and suggest what could be done differently.

This event is open to members, nonmembers and students. Light refreshments will be served. Discussion will be moderated.

The second annual Pitch.Click.Give! is back by popular demand - and AIGA Alaska is excited to be a part of it!

Pitch.Click.Give. is an event to bring nonprofits, marketing and design gurus, and fundraising professionals together to create new campaign ideas for Pick.Click.Give. organizations - all in one evening. We are seeking graphic and web designers to sign up and participate that night, or donate services for the final, produced campaigns.

Teams will form around each nonprofit and pitch their final campaign to a panel of judges. The winning non-profit pitch will win over $15,000 of in-kind marketing support plus $1,000 cash toward their campaign. It will be a great opportunity to brainstorm ideas, build community, win prizes, and launch the next best Pick.Click.Give. campaign!
