Chicago Design Event: EPIC launch party

March 18, 2009

Attention Chicago Designers!

EPIC  is having a launch party this Thursday night 3.18.09 at Grip Design in Chicago from 6-9 pm. They will feature the first EPIC creative rally team’s work for Girls in the Game and raffle for a work by Chicago artist Derek Erdman and printed posters by Screwball Press. 

Erin Huizenga, who is also on the AIGA Chicago board of directors, introduced me to the group. EPIC, “Engaging Philanthropy, Inspiring Creatives” is a new Chicago-based nonprofit organization. Their mission is to engage creatives in social change. They are putting together 8-week creative rally team, hosted by design firms and ad agencies around the city. Each team is made up of creatives from many offices and freelancers. Each team will work for a Chicago nonprofit for 8-weeks to produce promotional material that will help the nonprofit to make an even bigger impact for those they serve. What an amazing impact it will have! I am looking forward to hearing more about them.

Here is a quick link to their courageous mission.
