2017 Get Worked Up Conference

Get Worked Up is a half-day mini conference for emerging and student designers. This conference is part of the AIGA Emerge initiative focused on designers who are just launching their careers to those who have up to five years of experience in the field. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  1. Meet, interact and collaborate with their Upstate New York peers; 

  2. Learn more about the profession, the business of design, landing a job and being involved in the design community

  3. Walk away inspired by the projects, creativity, and work of designers in our region

  4. Ask questions and talk with speakers -- don't be shy, ask what you really want to know.
