Fostering a positive culture within design.
A platform for designers to engage in critical discussion about graphic design text. We read books focused on theory, practice, criticism, history, culture, and more.
We offer designers the space to share with us their unique perspectives through virtual talks. Presentations are engaging, conversational, and open to the public.
Monthly opportunities for designers to come together for informal conversation. A time for questions, work-sharing, design critiques, connection, etcetera.
We listen with intention to ensure that our purpose is rooted in diversity and acceptance. We are welcoming of perspectives that challenge existing notions of graphic design and spark interest in new arenas.
We come together because we believe that literacy within graphic design is essential to our practices. We offer the space for designers to come together to learn, think, and engage in critical thought.
We measure success based on what we hear and strive to support each other in a way that nurtures growth and confidence within graphic design. We champion and celebrate each other’s success.
