Communicating “Culture" through Design
Host: Tyler Blik
Location: 416 13th Street, SD 92101

Is there a higher road through the chaotic fabric of 21st century humanity? Tyler Blik says “Yes. There is still beauty in this world.” Join fellow AIGA SD members for another inspired morning of creative collaboration. Blik will discuss how designing for educational, art and historical social institutions help to define our society, our culture and ourselves.

The morning’s forum will include discussions about questions like: “‘Why is there a current lack of civil obedience?’ ‘Why is there so much divisiveness?’ ‘As designers, how might we turn the tide of fears and project greater happiness and a higher level of cultural interaction?’ ‘How do we make choices about the clients we do work for ­– a defense contractor or an institution that encourages people or brings beauty to the world?’”

Tyler Blik is the principal of San Diego-based design firm Blik, guiding brand communication systems for a diverse roster of clients from blue chip companies to community-based non-profits.

He and his firm have been widely recognized for their dedication in connecting people to new ideas and experiences, while promoting more community-based, socioeconomic design solutions.
