Get Broke or Die Tryin': LGDA vs. OMFGCO
Thursday, September 20, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us as we duke it out with OMFGCO - The Official Manufacturing Company.
We are The Official Manufacturing Company.
We are not a design studio.
We are neither an ad agency nor a branding house.
Nor are we a sign shop or a think tank.
We are a multi-headed hydra made of all of these things, born in Portland, Oregon in 2009.
OMFGCO includes (but is not limited to) Jeremy Pelley, Fritz Mesenbrink, Ben Parsons, Heather Gregory, Colby Brooks, Matti Jonsson and Sweeney Arnett, but not necessarily in that order.
Fritz Mesenbrink hales from Forks, Washington, the home of rain. He used to rappel out of helicopters and put out forest fires, now he just runs a company along side of Jeremy.
Fritz has brown hair and blue eyes and is tall and is an Aquarius. He enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Victoria, and his hilarious, two-year-old son, Enzo. Fritz knows exactly what he's doing. More or less.
Jeremy Pelley hales from Lubbock, Texas, home of dirt. He used to throw himself down sets of stairs and lurk in empty parking garages after hours, but now he just runs a company along side Fritz. Jelly Helm once called him, "one of the most intense laid back dudes I have ever met." Jeremy has brown hair, brown eyes, and is above average in height. He is a Libra, and he flosses, both literally and metaphorically.
When & Where
LGDA is now AIGA Louisville!
LGDA was formed in 1988 in order to enhance the quality of design in our home community of Louisville, Kentucky. In 2014, LGDA made the jump to an AIGA chapter in order to further facilitate the design conversation and provide greater value to our members. On a larger scale, the group strives to educate the general public and business community about design and its effect on our daily lives. We are an entirely volunteer-based non-profit organization that relies on the passion of its members.
