AIGA, a professional association for designers, presented its annual design conference, Make/Think, this month in Memphis, Tennessee. Among the dozens of speakers, exhibits, screenings and symposia presented from October 8 – 11 were contributions from several members of the SVA faculty: Carin Goldberg and Paul Sahre (BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department); Debbie Millman (MPS Branding Department); Kurt Anderson, Michael Bierut and Julie Lasky (MFA Design Criticism Department); and Jennifer Bove, Liz Danzico and Khoi Vinh (MFA Interaction Design Department).
