AIGA PGH365 Opening Night volunteering


I was very happy to volunteer at PGH365 this year covering the event with my friend Vinita.

While I might be moving more into the interaction space, visual design will always be in my heart. For instance, of course I had to go to the Conflict Kitchen to eat the restaurant that won Best of Show for its design (by Brett Yasko).
