Just returned from a fantastic AIGA Leadership retreat in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m always excited to visit a new city, primarily for the food, but also for the culture. Salt Lake City was expansive; it was friendly, it was historic, and it was a lot of fun. Most of the fun came from the variety of creative personalities that gather from AIGA chapters throughout the country, 66 total dedicated to graphic design and visual communication.
This was a particularly exciting year because I went to the AIGA event as an incoming president for San Diego. I felt that I needed to focus more and make a big effort to meet and mingle with other presidents.
One of the best parts of visiting a new city is taking a run early in the morning and really getting to know the streets. In this case, I ran to the capital building and asked a tourist to take my picture as a proof to my wife, Darcy, that I really did run. I’m bringing back many great ideas. I am also enthusiastic about stepping into the role of President of AIGA San Diego. Here’s a shot from my hotel room, what a view!
