AIGA Entrepreneurship in Design Series – Giants and Crobars

Wednesday, July 20th
6:00pm – Socializing
7:00pm – Presentation
Revolution Mill
1200 Revolution Mill Dr.
Greensboro, NC

Join us Wednesday evening July 20th for the first of our Entrepreneurship In Design series events!

Our first speakers are local design luminaries, Phillip Oakley, owner of Common Giant and Todd Kinley, owner of Crobar. Long-time fixtures in the Triad design community, Phillip and Todd’s companies have consistently been ranked among the top design firms in our area, and both have a long history of helping young designers get their starts; be it through mentorship, internships or junior design positions with their firms. We’re excited to hear their advice on venturing out on your own, building a business in today’s economic climate, and how to guide yourself and your employees toward life balance and success.

Our event will begin at 5:30pm in the same space in which GTCC will be holding their annual portfolio day event. We invite you to come out early (the portfolio day event is free and open to the public from 8am-6pm!) and mingle with other local creatives, view student portfolios, give them some feedback, enjoy light refreshments, then hear from our esteemed guest speakers, starting at 6!

We are very excited to be partnering with Revolution Mill for these two events, and hope you’ll take a few minutes to walk around the incredibly beautiful Revolution Mill complex and see all the exciting living/working/entertainment facilities coming together in this unique historical landmark.

Stay tuned for future installments of our Entrepreneurship in Design Series.

This is a free event, but we ask that you please RSVP through Eventbrite so we can plan accordingly!
