An AIGA conference on the importance of collaborative design will be promoted in Washington, DC. The goal is to reach enthusiastic design students and freelance designers who lack the few skills necessary to fit in a design team. A lecture and a mini-workshop will be held during the 1-day conference. Hopefuls want to help designers play off their strengths, teach them to how to belong in their design community and to assist them to discover their voice as a creative being. The conference is about sharpening your problem-solving skills and practicing collaboration.
