After two outstanding years of leadership, Lutska is moving on from her role as your AIGA Student Group President. Thanks to her, you've enjoyed talks with Si Scott, Volker Durre, RiCardo Crespo and many others. She's also organized tours at many studios, including Chase Design Group and Sisu, Inc. Beyond the hours of coordination, emails, recruitment and organization these events required, she has also designed posters and other promotional materials, and recruited some of you to do the same.
Her grand finale event is a dream come true for Lutska (and us): IDEO! Save the date February 24, 2011, for the 1010 talk by Fred Dust. More details to come.
The bottom line is that working with Lutska has been a delight! Here are some of her own words about her tenure (and a word about our new president):
Organizing events for more than two years was a wonderful and valuable experience. I enjoyed so much coming up with ideas for compelling speakers and studio visits and then making it all happen.
I finished the Advanced Print and Graphic Communication Certificate recently. Now it's time to focus on building my career in communication design, visiting speaker events and conferences. I am looking forward to and I am open to interesting opportunities ahead of me!
My website is up and running www.lumavo.com - YEY. I would love to thank everyone in the program for support over the years. I am sure that Aileen will be a great president who will bring new, fresh ideas to the table. I already enjoy her enthusiasm and drive, because that's exactly what I started with.
We will miss Lutska very much (although I know we'll stay in touch). Check out her portfolio site and you'll see she's well positioned to continue creating great design!
Please give your thanks to Lutska. We give ours!
