Calling all Seattle Designers: Enter to win tickets to the DESIGN LECTURE SERIES


April Greiman, Stefan Sagmeister, David Carson, and Ken Garland…you’ve admired their work from afar. You follow them on social media. The Seattle Design Lecture Series offers an opportunity to be inspired by them….


Last fall, Seattle-based creative agency CIVILIZATION began producing a four-part Design Lecture Series held at The Seattle Public Library. The extremely popular talks have sold out within minutes, featuring April Greiman in September, and Stefan Sagmeister in November.


The next two lectures in January and April will feature David Carson and Ken Garland. David Carson is founder of David Carson Design, a former professional surfer, and renowned magazine art director, most known for his unique typographic style. Carson’s lecture in the Design Lecture Series is scheduled for January 24, 2014. All of the lectures feature a Q&A portion where the lecturers take questions on Twitter (#designlectures).


We’d like to give YOU the chance to win one of 4 tickets to David’s lecture and a chance to ask your own questions of these iconic designers. Comment here with a question YOU would ask David Carson, or post a Tweet making sure to use #designlectures and tag @mohawkpaper. We’ll choose 2 winners from the blog, 1 from Twitter, and 1 from Facebook. Enter on all platforms for a better chance to win. Contest ends 1/22/14 at 3PM PST.

This contest is only open to residents of Seattle or those who can easily drive to the event, as travel costs will not be reimbursed. If you’re not in the Seattle area but still wish to participate, tweet your questions to the designers tagged with #designlectures. Good luck!

    David, how do you feel your work with RayGun and the grunge typography movement have contributed to the speaking of truth in experience and importance of the “User Experience” (UX) in todays world.
