On April 2, 2015, two distinguished design professionals will receive the AIGA Fellow Award.
Join us as we recognize and commemorate the achievements of our 2015 Fellow Award recipients. The evening will include a full course meal, drinks, and the best of Austin’s design community adorned in their finest “after 5 attire.
The Fellow Award program is a means of recognizing design professionals who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in practice and conduct within their local or regional design community as well as in their local AIGA chapter. The areas of education, writing, leadership and reputation, as well as the practice of design are given equal consideration in measuring significant contribution. The chapter nominated two honorees and will be hosting the awards on a biennial basis to reflect the growing chapter, now over 600 members.
