This October, the AIGA hosted another one of its biennial design conferences – this time in Memphis, TN.

As part of the conference’s line-up, KMIP’s Agnieszka Gasparska took part in an “Art Direction on the Web” panel with Ian Adelman (nymag.com + menupages.com) and Khoi Vinh (NYTimes.com).

The Shirt Project

Recipients of a Rhoda Lubalin Fellowship, Rich Watts and Kiss Me I’m Polish’s very own Louise Ma produced ten t-shirts from August 2007 to March 2009. Each was printed with diagrams that relayed information from a recent news story, and was available by subscription, like a newspaper.

Their grande finale shirt dealt with the creeping death of newsprint. It features the work of twelve New York City-based designers, arranged like a classified ad section. Among the designs is a contribution by Agnieszka Gasparska, illustrating the drop in stock values of the top six U.S. Newspaper companies.

AIGA Fresh Dialogue: 20th Anniversary

In 1999, the American Institute of Graphic Arts launched Fresh Dialogue, a series aimed at bringing together emerging design talent and providing them with an open forum to discuss their own work and the direction of the field.

This year, five talented and eloquent designers (Alice Chung, Karen Hsu, Agnieszka Gasparska, Rodrigo Corral and Alan Dye) from the disparate worlds of fashion, publishing, web, advertising and art unleashed a dialogue about their work. They were kept in check by design’s inky colossus, the always unpredictable Chip Kidd.
