During the AIGA 100 Celebration on January 21, 2014 we 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 win­ning pro­pos­als involved Creative Thinking Workshops from Marni Myers and the cre­ation of a book doc­u­ment­ing the 54-year his­tory of the International Design Conference in Aspen from Katherine McCoy.

In total we received five appli­ca­tions and while all of the ideas were excel­lent we as a board were very inter­ested in these two ideas that would doc­u­ment the rich his­tory of design in the late 20th Century and delve into the lat­est in cre­ative think­ing by aggre­gat­ing infor­ma­tion pre­sented at design con­fer­ences. They will be shar­ing their progress and suc­cess of their projects with AIGA Colorado members.

We look for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing the achieve­ments of these two local design­ers and wish to sup­port other design­ers in our com­mu­nity with future Robert Taylor Professional Grant awards. For fur­ther infor­ma­tion please con­tact Gwen Penner.
