How do they cross paths?

This is the first ever joint PHICHI & AIGA meeting!
As user experience professionals, we always need to interface and
collaborate with graphic artists and designers. At times, we all know that
this can be difficult. There is a lot that both professions can learn from
each other in order to work better together. This is why PHICHI has decided
to hold a joint meeting with the local chapter of the American Institute of
Graphic Arts (AIGA).

For this first joint meeting, we decided to give members of both
organizations a closer look at the User-Centered Design process of two local
agencies, Avenue A | Razorfish and GSI Commerce. Each company will explain
their design process from start to finish and show sample deliverables of
their work. You will get to see how their design and user experience teams
work together.
