Justin Kemerling Lecture: Making This Design Thing Matter

Monday, March 27 // 7–9 PM
Cyrano’s Theater, 411 D St, Anchorage, AK 99501

Working somewhere not known for design, running a small business, building a solid client list, AND making a difference. It’s a tall order. But it can be done. You can build a great design career and design for good.

As a designer, Justin Kemerling has focused on making his home Omaha, Nebraska beautiful. As an activist and collaborator, he works primarily with community organizations, political campaigns, and changemaking startups in need of branding, graphic design, web design, and art direction to move people to action and get good things done.

At Making This Design Thing Matter, Justin will share how firmly established principles for your work can lead to projects you are passionate about - and empower your community. And empowerment can lead to change. And change is how you make this design thing matter.

Seats are limited.

Sorry, tickets are not refundable.
