“1 million design students will graduate this year in China, the United States will graduate 40 thousand.”

On September 9th, Christopher Liechty from the AIGA XCD (Center for Cross Cultural Design) will be presenting findings from a recent field trip to China. The presentation will take place at the Art institute in Draper (121 W. Election Road) at 7:00 pm ($5 for AIGA members, $10 for non-members).

This sounds like a great opportunity to get a look at the state of design in China, especially after seeing all the great design and work from the Beijing Olympics.

Additional request: Can someone please fix the SLC AIGA web site? I’d love to link to some official information, but can’t find anything about this particular event online.
