Producing back-to-back AIGA design events this past weekend would have been impossible without tons of help. Convert Like Crazy and Portfolio Day 2016 went great and I have lots of you to thank, so may I present the AIGA SB April Double-Header Weekend Honor Roll:

AIGA SB Volunteers: Jennie Jacobs, Nicki Gauthier, Gen Matsui, Cassi Lindberg, Patty Devlin-Driskel, David Cowan, Marianne Cothern, Susan LeVine, Anna Lafferty, Jan Helsel, Tom Hinkle.

Presenters & Reviewers: Julia Sevin, Lianna Patch, Ben Blanchard, Rachel Elnar, Jon Leslie, Kevin Mapp, Ryan Garcia, Jean-Paul Tummler, Rebecca Ek, Lee Ann Engle, Laura Strohbusch, Angela Milosevic.

I know everyone’s time is valuable, so I’m grateful to you all for helping AIGA SB make these two fun events possible. Thank you!
