In 1914, the first meetings of what ultimately became AIGA required members to bring their own Windsor-style chairs, as the fledgling organization was just developing its infrastructure. As Centennial Co-Chair, I was responsible for devising a year-long slate of programs that were implementable at various scales by 70 chapters. To represent the flavor of each community, each chapter customized a Real Good chair — among 25 other activities. In partnership with Blu Dot.

Ann Willoughby, Doug Powell, Michael Lejeune, and I finish the two-day strategy in December 2012 to kick off the year-long campaign.
