The Austin Design and Visual Arts Network (ADVAnet) is a group for designers and visual artists of all types, including professionals, job seekers, students, and those curious about getting into the field. We usually meet once a month, with two additional meetings where we join up with other groups. We were formerly known as Austin Texas Design and Media (ATXDM) from July 2009 to July 2012, and before that it was founded in 2003, called simply Austin Designer Meetup. We're's second oldest continuously active graphic design group. (We're watching you St. Louis!)

We're inclusive of design and visual arts from all disciplines, so no matter you're background or interest, we'd love to have you join us.
