On November 2nd, PhiCHI (The Philadelphia Region's Chapter of the ACM

holding their next joint meeting; a round table discussion with audience
participation and panelists from user experience and design team members
from Electronic Ink, Inc. and The Vanguard Group, Inc..
The panelists will discuss questions that were previously submitted from the

wireframe to design/how do you feel when your wireframe is not adhered to?).
We will endeavor to address as many questions as time permits at the event.

In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia, the
first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Presently the
chapter is comprised of over 400 members. AIGA Philadelphia's purpose is
both integral and complementary to the national organization: to provide the
highest standards within the profession and the business community and to
stimulate interest and understanding of graphic design and visual
communication through lectures, exhibitions, periodicals and other
activities. Learn more: http://philadelphia.aiga.org/about.html
