In 2010, I joined the local chapter of AIGA in New Orleans as Secretary and Project Manager. In 2011, I was chosen to go with a delegation of our chapter officers to the annual AIGA leadership retreat. Each chapter was tasked with submitting a card that would represent be a good introduction to their city. The brief required some facts to be listed on the back as well and the cards were printed and allowed to be handed out as collectibles. For New Orleans, we chose to submit my design of our shorthand nickname in our iconic street tiles.
