On a beautiful recent Saturday in Tenleytown, a group of designers and some of their family members with energy to spare came together to kick some ball. They laid down their MacBooks, mouses, and (xacto) blades with one goal in mind: have some fun. This co-sponsored gathering “kicked off” AIGA’s Design Week, a week of design inspired events for the whole community.
Mike Matera, program co-chair for ADCMW, said it really was a great time, and that the group was able to mesh teams and kickball strengths. While a score was never actually kept, and the game lasted two long innings, the point was clear: regardless of affiliation, we’re all just hard-working designers looking to kick back and enjoy some down time.
