WOW. What a fascinating and inspiring evening! On June 10th, IDSA KY hosted a Louisville Design Week event on the theme of Designer As Entrepreneur. Over 50 area designers and entrepreneurs joined us at FirstBuild to learn real life lessons from local Designer Entrepreneurs, Tyler Deeb and Katie Bush. They both gave engaging presentations that opened your eyes to the possibilities and challenges of bringing your dream to life and breaking out on your own.
Louisville entrepreneur Galen Powers and FirstBuild Designer Jarvis Ward, shared area resources that are available to aspiring Designer Entrepreneurs. Some of the examples mentioned included FirstBuild, Louisville Hardware Startup Meetup and Vogt Awards. For a copy of the area resources handout that was provided to attendees, click here.
A big thank you to AIGA for putting on Louisville Design Week, to Tyler Deeb and Katie Bush for preparing such relevant and meaningful presentations, to FirstBuild for hosting us, and to Galen Powers and Jarvis Ward.
