Rally Around Design Live with Justin Dauer: The Designer’s Most Essential Trait

Introducing AIGA El Paso & AIGA Student Group’s Rally Around Design Live series!!


Don’t miss the opportunity to join us in a conversation with Justin Dauer to discuss Humility: The Designer’s Most Essential Trait

Humility is essential to doing our best work. Why? Effective visual communication and intuitive UX are not subjective; every objective design decision we make carries weight, and is bigger than us. We must understand the privilege, and the responsibility, that are inherent in our craft.

And, in communicating. In *connecting* with people through design.

When there are clear project goals to be reached and problems to be solved, having a willingness to listen, learn, understand, grow, evolve, and connect will fuel you—and your design’s—evolution.

If we are always students of our craft, we are always making ourselves available to evolve. “Experience” does not equal “expert”, despite having a monogrammed portfolio or a blue checkbox next to your Twitter handle.

Through the lens of the vulnerability of a career’s journey inclusive of early success, and the resulting effects on his design + personal growth, join Justin Dauer as he talks through how the human connection must always lead in evolving ourselves as designers, our work, and our career’s journey. We can’t settle for anything less: you, your work, and those on the receiving end of what you create, *deserve* nothing less..

Join us on Thursday, June 17th, 2021 at 6:30 PM (MT) / 7:30 PM (CST) 

The webinar is free and open to the public, so be sure to register to reserve your spot!
