AIGA-NYC Presents Panel of Top Design Bloggers

AIGA-NYC featured "Design Blogging is Changing Everything" as their Fresh Dialogue 25 December meeting at the Tishman Auditorium in lower Manhattan.

Every day, hour, and minute, design blogs present an unprecedented and ever-expanding diversity of design. AIGA-NY brought together four design blog luminaries (left) followed by a discussion of how design blogs are changing design, investigating the unintended consequences of self-publishing, and what blogging can achieve for its readers, writers, and the design community at large.

The event featured presentations by Khoi Vinh/subtraction.com, Josh Rubin/CoolHunting.com, Tina Roth Eisenberg/swiss-miss.com, Allan Chochinov/Core77.com with a discussion moderated by Alice Twemlow, chair of the SVA design criticism MFA Program and contributing editor at DesignObserver.com
