This past Tuesday we cel­e­brated AIGA’s 100th birth­day in style with a birth­day bash at Shift Workspaces. The evening was a cel­e­bra­tion of AIGA’s glo­ri­ous past, present and future. Members from all over the com­mu­nity gath­ered to share their mem­o­ries and sto­ries of inspi­ra­tion and pas­sion for our beloved field. We heard from for­mer AIGA Colorado pres­i­dent and last year’s recip­i­ent of the AIGA Colorado Fellow award Deborah Williams as well as Marian Halladay, recip­i­ent of the Fellow award in 2011.

We pre­viewed some of the excit­ing things  that will be hap­pen­ing this year to cel­e­brate AIGA100 includ­ing the viral Instagram cam­paign in which design­ers post pic­tures of their favorite chair and cap­tion it with “this is my chair and I ___ here.” A one year sub­scrip­tion of Adobe Creative Cloud was auc­tioned off as well as an auto­graphed copy of Shel Perkin’s book Talent Is Not Enough: Business Secrets For Designers. We also revealed the win­ners of our inau­gural Robert Taylor Professional Grant award. Congratulations to Katherine McCoy and Marni Myers who each won the $1,000 grant! The evening was capped off with cake and a Kool-aid toast.

Thanks to every­one who came out and cel­e­brated with us, it cer­tainly was a mem­o­rable evening. And we can’t thank our gen­er­ous spon­sors enough for their sup­port:
Shift Workspaces
Sprint Denver, Inc.
The Armory Workspace
The Creative Group

Here’s to another suc­cess­ful 100 years!
