Our five brilliant 2015 AIGA Medalists and their loves ones (from left to right): Ken Friedman, brother of the late Dan Friedman, Paola Antonelli, Emory Douglas, Marcia Lausen, and Christina Curtis, wife of the late Hillman Curtis.

A couple weeks ago designers and design lovers from across the country gathered in New York City to celebrate five of the creative community’s finest at AIGA’s annual Gala. Fancy dresses were worn, amazing photo booth fun was had, and many Tang cocktails were consumed (there was an “outer space” theme courtesy of Dick Danne, a former Medalist who designed for a little outfit called NASA).

If you missed it, come party with us next year. In the meantime, watch the great short videos to learn more about Paola Antonelli, Hillman Curtis, Emory Douglas, Dan Friedman, and Marcia Lausen. If you don’t know all these names, you really, really should.
