AIGA Make/Think Conference in Memphis

AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) held its "Make/Think" conference in Memphis, October 8-11, 2009 where 1500 professional graphic designers gathered to share ideas and re-connect with others in their profession. There are over 20,000 members of AIGA with chapters across the country.

Planners (left) like Executive Director Ric Grefe, President Debbie Millman, designers Michael Bierut, Clement Mok, Sean Adams, William Drenttel and many others worked hard to make the event one of the best design conferences in the world. Dozens of volunteers (right) made it possible to manage all the details during the 3-day event.

Presenters ranged from David Butler, Director of Global Design for Coca-Cola to Sol Sender and Scott Thomas who designed President Obama's campaign logo and website. Presenters ranged from 19 year old Ethan Bodnar to design legends Charles Harrison, Clement Mok and Doyald Young.
