Students and faculty from Avila's Graphic Design program attended a presentation by the AIGA National President, Doug Powell, of Schwartz Powell Design in Minneapolis. Doug introduced a new AIGA initiative, Design For Good, which encourages designers to work collaboratively with organizations and industry to tackle our most pressing social issues.
In response to the diagnosis of their daughter of Type II Diabetes, Doug and Lisa Powell designed a line of kid-friendly educational products about health and nutrition.
The event was held at the American Institute of Architects space in downtown KC.
