What we're about

PCoGD will inform members on news within the graphic design community. We hope to give tips and information on tools, advancing your design, freelancing, legal aid services, conferences, awards, contest, grant information, networking, news on employment opportunities, and we hope to learn some new and exciting information from our members. All this when we all get the chance to "Meet-up!"

PCoGD was formerly known as The Philadelphia Graphic Designers Meet-up. We decided to claim ourselves as a Chapter of Designers. When defined by www.dictionary.com, the word "Chapter" is a branch, usually restricted to a given locality, of a society, organization, fraternity, etc.: the Connecticut chapter of the American Red Cross; or an important portion or division of anything: The atomic bomb opened a new chapter in history.

I believe we, as designers and artist are a society as well an important portion or division of anything. It's about time to allow our surrounding affiliates to be aware of the importance of Graphic Designers! Join us in our efforts!
