2013's AIGA Design Matters at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara.
Founder/CEO Barbara Brown participated as a panelist in this year's AIGA Design Matters at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara. The room was filled with a myriad of designers; from students and freelancers to established designers. The lively interchange ping-ponged between discussing the creative components of graphic design and marketing, to the challenges and opportunities of running the business end of design. Wayne Kosaka flew down from San Rafael to moderate the discussion. Others in the panel of accomplished creatives included Justin Carroll, partner & co-founder, Hamagami/Carroll, Inc., brand specialist for video gaming, John Silva of DuPuis Group, specializing in packaging and Cya Nelson of Cyan Design Studio.
