Members and friends of AIGA Miami,
I’m excited to join our chapter’s Board as Membership Chair! You might have seen me around—for the past year I’ve been involved with AIGA in some capacity or another, first by joining events, then by joining as a member and volunteer. I’ve met many of you along the way, and now I hope to connect with many more in the coming weeks and months.
As a graphic designer raised, educated, and now working in Miami, I know the excitement and challenges of building a design career in South Florida. I share your love for what sets our city’s creative community apart: its diversity, its unique sense of solidarity, its passion for proactively tackling issues that not only affect our backyard, but also the world. With this in mind I look forward to working alongside you to ensure our member program reflects Miami’s core values of inclusiveness and positivity. AIGA Miami has accomplished so much in the past 26 years; with you, I’d like to explore what we can do better.
I’ve been busy brainstorming ideas and can’t wait for you to join the conversation. On June 26, we’ll host a chapter Community Meeting, where I’ll be talking about our first wave of initiatives, in particular the development of a members-only Crit Circle. This upcoming series spearheaded by Adriana Tamayo will foster a judgment-free environment for designers of all walks of life to help each other hone ideas and problem-solve their way through creative blocks. It’s exactly the type of supportive platform AIGA strives to create for you, our biggest fans. Maybe you have some thoughts on how we should bring this to life—join us in June or feel free to shoot me an email so we can build it out together. Let’s speak soon!
