Have I mentioned before how great it is being a member of my local AIGA Chapter? Oh I have? Let me just say it again, Nashville's chapter is fantastic. Less than a week out from Dana Tanamachi's talk and I get to enjoy (dare I say revel in) another talk by Design Hero, Jim Sherraden of Hatch Show Print. He spoke to the history of Hatch, and how he resurrected the dying business and has kept it going all these years. The presentation was full of stories, amazing visuals (duh, Hatch Posters), much thanks, and excitement for the future. It's so refreshing to hear someone with so much love and passion, for not just his occupation in the design industry, but also for the history of letterpress itself.
Last night's presentation was the kickoff in a new AIGA series (co-hosted/sponsored by Emma) and should be the first in many inspirational, informational and downright exciting talks by local designers in Nashville. If this first round was any indication, the Nashville creative community is in for treat.. after treat!
