AIGA NY: Beyond Agency Life

Mon, May 15 / 6:30 pm

Join us for a discussion on what happens when designers become entrepreneurs. Jolene Delisle, Jason Gnewikow, and Rachael Yaeger will share stories about their industry roots and breaking new ground between NYC and the Catskills, where they are all connecting creativity, culture, and community. Panelists will give short presentations and participate in a moderated conversation on how they successfully branched out beyond agency life.  

Co-presented with the Museum of Arts and Design, this program is part of AIGA NY’s Fresh Dialogue event series focusing on current events, issues of cultural relevance, and emerging topics in the design world.
