A little bit of business. And a little bit of pleasure. Each year, as the weather turns warm, AIGA Chicago invites the local community to celebrate design, the city and of course, have some drinks.

This year is no different. We’ll be at Chop Shop and 1st Ward to share the past year's highlights, our vision for the future of the chapter, and give some serious props to all the people who have given their time to AIGA Chicago. This year we’re excited to bring back Snapshot and showcasing the work you’ve done! Be sure to send us your Biggest Win, Biggest Fail, Biggest Risk, Passion Project and something that Never Saw The Light of Day by June 2. For more info about submissions visit:

After we've talked business, we’ll invite Eileen Tjan and Margo Yoon, local designers to the stage to discuss their work in applying design to drive positive social impact right here in Chicago.

There will be drinks. There will be snacks. There will be friends, colleagues, and new board members to meet. Don’t miss celebrating summer and Chicago design with us on June 20.
