In the summer of 2017, I joined the board of AIGA Austin in an "Explorer" capacity. An "Explorer" is someone on the board that assists in different AIGA initiatives without having to fully commit to a single facet of AIGA Austin; exploring where they might like to assert their efforts, when they are ready to commit to more responsibilities.
After I got involved as an Explorer, I was recommended to help out with AIGA Austin's monthly Creative Mass (a happy hour on the second Tuesday of every month). Something that I thought was missing from the events was a collectible/commemorative take-away item. I also realized, that at most of the events I had been to, I always walked away with a napkin containing notes from conversations, and people's names. My solution was to create a collectible postcard that could double as a note card. After some conversation with the Creative Mass team, we realized it was also a great opportunity to announce upcoming events. Shown are examples from past Creative Mass events.
