AIGA West Michigan’s Design For Good initiative, Weekend Blitz, is days away. April 17th will mark the kick-off for this 3-day event where nearly 50 creatives will volunteer their weekend to a local West Michigan organization. This year, Weekend Blitz will connect teams of designers, illustrators, developers, strategists, copywriters, and photographers with 5 organizations working to create a larger impact in our community and looking for the tools and resources to get them there. This year’s organizations are:

  • Artists Creating Together
  • Goodwill of Greater Grand Rapids
  • Grand Rapids Red Project
  • Michigan Blood
  • Muskegon County Water Safety Task Force

From projects like website redesigns to communication and interactive strategies, the weekend is sure to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. Follow @AIGAWM and #DFGblitz2015 on Twitter April 17-19 to watch the magic unfold.
