)-- Award-winning copywriters discuss the intersection of words and design.
On Dec. 17, AIGA Miami presents "Words Make Pictures," the launch event for its new Parallels series in which guest speakers explore their profession in the context of design. For "Words Make Pictures," copywriters will review their best work and engage in a roundtable discussion on the interplay between written and visual communications.
For this first conversation, AIGA proudly welcomes two talented creative leaders: Matías Blazevic, Senior Copywriter at Y&R Brands, and Chris McCauley, Associate Creative Director at LGD Communications.
Their work speaks to the powerful relationship between writing and design – very different creative processes that together create the basis of our communications industry. Their best work and lessons learned will be on display and up for discussion. The event is free and open to the public. AIGA invites anyone curious about creativity to be part of the conversation.

About AIGA Miami
In 1914 at the National Arts Club in New York City, 40 people met and passed a resolution authorizing a committee to draft a constitution and bylaws for a new organization named the American Institute of Graphic Arts and established "as a source of pleasure and intellectual profit" to its members.
Sixty-two years later in 1986, South Florida initiated its own chapter. It took some time to process the national paperwork and become incorporated in 1987. Some members of the original founding group were: Lee Warfield, Cynthia Haanegraf, Geoffrey van de Woerstyne, Jacques Auger, Claudia Auger, Katharina Drexel, Terry Stone, William Armenteros, Danny Ramirez. The early group received a lot of support from H&D Graphics (Bob Haff, Mike Daugherty, Karen Daugherty & Joanie Skipp) and Supertype (Livy Shephard). Many other important sponsors have helped us grow our programming and influence in the South Florida Design community.
AIGA Miami continues to be maintained by an all-volunteer board of dedicated members of the design community. Membership has grown quite a bit from the original core group; however, we are still a small chapter in comparison to other metro areas of a similar size.
