AIGA Santa Barbara to Display Graphic Design Exhibit at Acheson House Gallery

AIGA Santa Barbara, the Central Coast’s professional design association, will exhibit its members’ most compelling and significant professional graphic design work at the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara’s Acheson House Gallery from May 20 to June 23, 2016.

The showcase, titled “The Designer Behind the Design,” aims to highlight the talent in the Santa Barbara community and to share the story and creative statements of these artists’ professional designs. 

“The job of the designer is to draw attention to our client and their message,” said Patty Devlin-Driskel, board member of AIGA Santa Barbara and the show’s organizer. “Most people remember a well-designed piece, but where did that creativity come from? As designers we make the client, event, campaign or website memorable and marketable, but our role is invisible to the public. People rarely ask who was the designer behind the design.”

An opening reception for “The Designer Behind the Design” will be held from 5-7 p.m. May 20, 2016.

— Founded in 1983, the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is a public nonprofit charitable organization with the goal of enhancing the Santa Barbara community’s awareness and appreciation of architecture and the built environment.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
