Because in an age of interdependence, collaboration and the blurring of design and production, you are only as good as your tools, your technologies, your services, your vendors, your knowledge and your information. Included are company and organizational overviews, new developments of note, and contact information for buyers and specifiers. Not included are schools: they receive their own spotlight in the March/April edition.Read More

In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia, the first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Presently the chapter is comprised of over 600 members. AIGA Philadelphia’s purpose is both integral and complementary to the national organization: to provide the highest standards within the profession and the business community and to stimulate interest and understanding of graphic design and visual communication through lectures, exhibitions, and other activities.
Also, I'm featured in their Member Spotlight. "When I moved to Philadelphia from Los Angeles two years, I didn’t know anyone. I just knew Philadelphia had an AIGA chapter that’s where I needed to start."
WOMEN WHO DESIGN
Created by @julesforrest, @womenwhodesign is a Twitter profile directory of inspiring women in the design industry. It aims to help people find notable voices to follow on Twitter that are most interesting to them.
"I got the idea to build Women Who Design after a recent Twitter thread generated a huge list of amazing women who work on all different aspects of design. A few people were joking around that the thread was a great place to find potential recruits and I realized I had a different need: I’m not trying to recruit anyone but I’d love to find women who are excelling at specific things that I'm interested in or trying to learn more about. It also seemed like a waste to let the list get lost in all the noise on Twitter, so I decided to use it as a jumping off point and record each woman's profile in a free-standing, sortable directory."Read More
