I'm a part of AIGA because I enjoy giving back to the creative community whether it's mentoring or sharing my knowledge to help others.
AIGA enables me to collaborate with other creatives that speak my language and to keep up with ever-evolving design trends and platforms. AIGA leadership gives me endless opportunities for personal and professional growth, and empowers me to make my community even better.
I'm part of AIGA because I want to be an active member of the design community, practitioner, educator, advocate, and mentor.
I want to help others in the design community make connections and grow professionally. I'd like to then aid those connections by developing projects that benefit the community as whole.
Randall J Gregory II
AIGA has helped propel my career and given me a community of mentors, friends, and collaborators. By being in AIGA Austin, I hope to inspire others with my enthusiasm and experiences, along with bringing the voice of the membership to the rest of the board, helped to drive a more deeply connected community.
I originally became part of AIGA to leverage the network of designers, since joining I now can say I stay an AIGA member because it has become my family. The support and camaraderie amongst the group is what brings me back time and time again.
AIGA Austin is full of people that are inspired to make a difference and help shape the Austin Design community. Being a part time developer, I want to use my skillset to help the chapter in any way that I can and help better bridge that gap between design and development.
Co-Director of Education and Mentorship
I was recruited for the AIGA Colorado board 5 years ago by Elysia Seriac who continues to be a boss lady and one of the best mentors one could ask for. Mentorship is why I became a part of AIGA. As a non-designer, in a traditional sense, I didn't know if AIGA would embrace me and want to help me devleop. I was wrong - AIGA made me the designer I am today - the strategist who is leaned on when ambiguity is killing opportunity - and the leader that I never realized I could be. In reality - AIGA not only embraced me but together we have paved the way for future designers to take their new "seat at the table" and impact more than just the bottom line but the way that business is done. I now seek out opportunities to mentor others and am always happy to be your AIGA Austin resource.
