AIGA: Brands for a Positive Change

Brands for Positive ChangeTue 10 Mar 2015 — Please join AIGA Brand Central and our hosts, the Design Management program at the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (SASD) at the University of Bridgeport for an evening of inspired conversation on brands doing great things in the world. We’ve put together a panel of branding thought leaders who will reveal their experiences with companies and brands making a difference for positive change. As consumers we make choices every day with the brands we use. And for many of us, in addition to our brands making us look good, making us feel good…we want our brands to do good!
