AIGA Santa Barbara, the Central Coast’s professional design association, will exhibit its members most compelling and significant professional graphic design work at the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara’s (AFSB) Acheson House Gallery from May 20 – June 23.
The showcase, titled “The Designer Behind the Design”, aims to highlight the talent in the Santa Barbara community and to share their story and creative statements about their professional designs.
“The job of the designer is to draw attention to our client and their message. Most people remember a well-designed piece, but where did that creativity come from? As designers we make the client, event, campaign or website memorable and marketable but our role is invisible to the public. People rarely ask who was the designer behind the design.”
– Patty Devlin-Driskel, Board Member of AIGA Santa Barbara and show organizer.
The AFSB Gallery is located in the historic Acheson House on the corner of Garden and East Victoria Streets in Santa Barbara. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 2pm, and by appointment.
