The Value of AGDA - Testimonial from Stephen Castledine
5th December, 2011
This week Stephen Castledine of Castledine & Castledine shares his position on the value of AGDA membership:
I've been a member of AGDA since it started and the relationships I have forged in the design world would never have been possible without the resources of a national association.
As a Perth based designer, the prospect of attracting (let alone paying for!) visiting international designers is limited by our isolation. I've been privileged over the years to meet and share a meal with the likes of Stefan Sagmeister, Chip Kidd, George Hardie, Vince Frost and Paul Barnes, to name just a few. My design experience has been enhanced by exposure to their work and more importantly by the way they go about working.
Next year I will be travelling to New York and part of my plans will include reconnecting with some of the great designers I have met over the years - all thanks to AGDA!
We will be hearing from AGDA members around the country on why they value their AGDA membership and what they enjoy about being part of the AGDA community.
Whether it is a story about connecting with someone, being inspired by a guest speaker, an AGDA Award they have won, or an AGDA event that made a difference in their designer life.
