In 2009 AIGA San Francisco will launch a series of discussions on the business of design called "D.Talks." Throughout the year the seminars will present practical information about current trends in the design profession as well as enable a more robust dialogue within our community.

Light refreshments will also be served before the seminar. RSVP today and check out the topics to be presented throughout 2009.

Moderator/Host: Josh Levine
Josh Levine is a Design Strategist and former board member of the San Francisco Chapter of AIGA. For over ten years Josh has helped global brands engage consumers and empower employees through design, strategy, and marketing programs.
His new firm, The Matter Collaborative, brings those same benefits to small creative businesses, helping entrepreneurs get the work they want by creating more value through positioning, messaging, and touchpoint design.
