In addition to being able to buy the book and maybe even rub elbows with a few of the interviewees, you’ll also have your fair share of snacks, cocktails, socializing, networking, possibly a raffle, definitely some free swag and a quick speech or two from AIGA leaders and partners, as well as the company of pretty much everyone who has something to do with design in Chicago. Don’t miss out.

Tickets will be on sale soon at
