Our featured presenter from Saturday, Bill Gardner from Gardner Design, will also be hosting a copyright talk and discussion at 12pm at Naked City Gallery.

Registration opens on April 13th and closes on April 18th. Studio tours are limited to 12 participants to each group and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be a limited number of spots open, and attendees can choose only one group studio to tour. Once a tour is full, no additional registration for that tour will be available—there will be no waiting lists.

Your registration confirmation will include the studio address and contact information for your assigned studio. If questions arise, please contact AIGA Wichita’s President, Melissa Carduff at melissa@stuckynolte.com.

Studio Tours: Tours scheduled for 3:00-5:00 p.m. All tour participants will meet their respective groups at the first studio tour stop at 2:45pm to receive instructions. You are free to explore the Wichita Old Town area after the tour and recommendations for food and drinks will be provided. There will be no further studio tours at any other time during SPF.

Portfolio Reviews: All students participating in the portfolio review or competition should bring a portfolio that can be shown quickly, packed up and moved easily.

Portfolio Competition: Seniors participating in the portfolio competition will be given a table to set up their work after their reviews. Awards and prizes will be announced at the end of the day.

Accomodations: We have reserved blocks of rooms at the Hotel Old Town (877-265-3869) and the Holiday Inn (877-859-5095). Ask for the AIGA room rate.

For any questions please contact Dominic Flask at dom@ducttapeandglitter.com


What is copyright infringement?

27 Feb

There has been a lot of attention to this lately with some of the online discount logo sites, but the issue goes beyond the obvious. Copyright affects writers, photographers, designers, videographers, illustrators and anyone else in a creative industry. Kent Meyerhoff of Fleeson, Gooing, Coulson & Kitch, LLC will walk us through what is copyright infringement and how we protect against it. Bring your questions and lets have a good discussion on Thursday. You can even bring your clients.

Thursday, March 1, Noon to 1 pm
Naked City Gallery
Bring your lunch (and drink).
