July Creative Community Meeting

THEME: The Golden Ratio (w. Melinda Livsey)

Join AIGA OC at our July Community meeting as we get to the heart of the mystery of the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratio is often lauded as a magical invisible constant in our visual culture - like a Da Vinci Code for Designers and Artists - but what exactly is it? Does its existence make Visual Design a practice or an art? Or is it all just fiction to make Designers feel smart?

We'll be joined by special guest Melinda Livsey, CEO of design studio Marks & Maker, and co-host of YouTube show 'The Futur' with Chris Do. You'll leave the meeting with an understanding of what the Golden Ratio is, how we use ratios in design even when we don't realize it, and an introduction to a practical tool designers can use to be more intentional when designing with ratios of scale. Plus...
