Several years ago I was offered the opportunity to take on the graphic design responsibilities for MAINx24, a 24-hour festival celebrating Chattanooga’s Southside community along the Main Street corridor. It’s one day-long event comprised of over 100 smaller events that take place throughout the day. There’s food, music, and all sorts of fun activities for young and old alike. I was very excited to do so and, for the last 4 years (or so) I have had a great time working with awesome, generous and talented people to pull off what has come to be known as “The Best Day of the Year” on Main Street!
As a creative person, as a Designer, and especially as a AIGA member, I’ve wanted to see more design-related events pop up during this amazing event, but I just did not have the bandwidth to pull anything off myself. This year, our amazing AIGA Chattanooga Board came up with a great idea to collaborate with our design community. And, we are very excited to have you join us!
What’s in store?
We asked some of Chattanooga’s top designers and AIGA Members to share what MAINx24 and the Southside means to them. Their individual responses shall take the form of poster design, which will be on display at Mean Mug Coffeehouse during MAINx24, from 7:00am – 10:00pm, on Saturday, December 6th.
In the afternoon, from 4:30pm – 6:00pm the AIGA Chattanooga Board will host a Open House at Mean Mug Coffeehouse. This will be a time to meet with some of the designers in the show, as well as a time to discuss design, the community, and AIGA.
