A huge thank you goes out to all participants and attendees at the AIGA Toledo Summer Show Away With Words. The event was a huge success once again thanks in no small part to the excellent creative contributors to the show, our host space Handmade Toledo, the dedicated AIGA Toledo board members, AIGA Volunteers, musical guest Andrew Ellis, and of course all the wonderful attendees and design supporters.
AIGA Toledo board members were able to take what is normally a DIY workshop inside a 10,000 square foot warehouse behind the Handmade Toledo storefront and transform it into a pop up gallery. It took a lot of sweat and a lot of painting and drilling but it was worth it!
We were able to raffle off TONS of excellent prizes from the likes of Delicious Design League, BB+KK, Chipp Kidd, and more! It might have been hot in there, but there were plenty of cool drinks, good tunes, and great people to keep it casual, fresh and fun. Over 65 artists, illustrators, and designers from local, regional, national, and international locations contributed work to the show, and we auctioned off every single piece to the crowd.
Your continuing contributions and involvement with AIGA Toledo keeps events like these happening. Your support is appreciated, and we put 100% of profits from these events back into your Toledo chapter of AIGA in order to promote design in our region.
A special thanks for Rob Wagner for the event photography. Enjoy our recap. Looking for the digital gallery?
