Eric winter, Avila Graphic Design Assistant Professor recently attended "Head, Heart, Hand (http://designconference.aiga.org/)" in Minneapolis, a celebration of design thinking and strategy (Head), design for social impact (Heart) and design as craft (Hand). Winter was joined by over 1800 national and international designers, educators and vendors. As design faculty and Education Director for AIGA KC, Winter appreciates the educational focus stating "It's so great that AIGA has brought such a diversity of educators together. It really shows that the organization values education and recognizes its role in molding the future of the industry."
For Winter, a highlight of the conference was Aaron Draplin Design Company (http://www.draplin.com/). Draplin wrapped up the final general session with his "Tall Tales From a Large Man" presentation. Here's Winter with Draplin and other admiring conference-goers at the Walker Art Center closing party. Check out Twitter post from conference attendees at #HHH2013.
