It’s often said that two heads are better than one. Where would Bert be without Ernie? Thelma without Louise? Bill without Ted? Please join AIGA DC as we raise a glass and toast our own dynamic duos.

Event Description

Join AIGA DC for a night of great storytelling and inspiration. Three of DC’s creative couples discuss what it’s like to share a workspace, business, home and calling with their significant others. After presentations by each pair, all three couples will be invited back on stage for a Q&A session. The conversation will be followed by another perfect pairing—wine & chocolate—providing an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow creatives.

Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for a security check and registration.

    Hey All,

    I know I have been MIA for a while, but the tech company I am currently working for is in need of a print and/or interactive graphic designer to do some freelance work offsite. I, of course, thought of you all:) Is anyone interested? Let me know and I can forward your portfolio info to the appropriate people.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
