Design Month is back!

This October, AIGA Baltimore is planning another month-­long celebration of design and designers in Baltimore and beyond.

Our theme this year is Designing Life.

Design brings ideas to life.

Design is a part of life.

Design is a vital force for culture, business, and society.

This October, we’ll share the room with our fellow creatives at in-person events. We’ll listen to a panel of local designers who are using their skills to advocate for quality of life. We’ll celebrate AIGA’s longest living student group (20 years old!) And we’ll peek into life at some of Baltimore’s award-winning agencies.

Check back for updates throughout the month! Be sure to follow AIGA Baltimore on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn and subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss one day.
