Want a tasteful serving of design? Attend the various Studio Socials this fall. Each one will have a unique flavor as they are planned and hosted by student groups in the area. The Studio Social events will begin with an open house at a local design studio and follow with a social activity at a nearby establishment. This is a great opportunity to make connections with professionals and fellow peers in preparation for your future design career.
This Studio Social is sponsored by the AIGA student group from College for Creative Studies on Thursday December 1st.
