We are heading to Holocene for yet another dMob deLux where we will meet new friends and promote the vote. This month, we team up with ASMP (the American Society of Media Photographers) for an AIGA art opening of national Get Out the Vote posters. The poster project started in 2004 when AIGA invited designers from across the United States to create nonpartisan posters that inspire the American public to participate in the electoral process and vote for a presidential candidate in the 2008 general election. At dMob, the Portland AIGA chapter will be displaying the posters from the 2008 Get Out the Vote campaign and distributing them via raffle by the end of the evening.
This dMob will be one of many joint events that seek to provide more integration and communication among creatives in different fields in Portland. That's right, we are seeking out new creative allies. ASMP is one such ally, a fantastic organization of photographers that boasts a website complete with a "find a photographer" section, allowing a visitor to search by specialization. We hope that as designers and photographers meet, the sparks will fly, or maybe just the flash.
Cheers, to October's dMob deLux!
The dMob Concept
This is our monthly gathering for the entire Portland design community. Social interaction and networking is the core of this monthly event. AIGA Portland wants to encourage discussion, business development, and help foster a more dynamic design community here in Portland. Plus, with such a plethora of independent breweries, our choice of venues and beverages is expansive.
Free and open to the public. That’s right, no charge! For one, you’ll have a great time. And even better, it’s an amazing opportunity to network and meet fellow designers.
How It Works
It’s simple. When you arrive, you’ll get a sticker to wear. Venture forth, find another sticker-wearer and offer them a drink. That’s the trick: you can’t just drink your own, that just wouldn’t be social. It’s a great way to break the ice.
