SPD Professional Event Tuesday Night

Don't forget that as part of your student membership you get discounted admission to all our professional member events. And it just so happens that there's one TUESDAY night featuring Chip Kidd. Don't know who he is? A quick Google search will give you a pretty good intro. He's just published a new novel called "The Learners" which is a sequel to his previous novel "The Cheese Monkeys" ... both of which you should read cause they're about design school and transitioning to the real world. Fun AND educational, what could be better? Anyway, if you're in the city, you should come:

WHEN: Tuesday, April 22
7 - 8:30pm; doors open at 6:30
WHERE: Katie Murphy Amphitheatre, FIT (27th Street & Seventh Avenue, NYC)
HOW: Buy tickets at the door:
SPD Members, $15 CASH
Non-members, $20 CASH
Students with valid ID: $5 CASH
First 50 FIT Students & Faculty with valid ID: FREE / $5 if after the first 50

We sure have a case of it; do you?

And today in NYC is supposed to be extra spring-y ... how is anyone supposed to get work done with weather like this? 

Regardless we have been hard at work selecting winners for our STUDENT COMPETITION and matching them up with the internships they want. We'll reveal the winners' work starting next Monday, so be sure to check us out on your laptop while you're hanging out in the park procrastinating on all the stuff you have to do.

Last night's Year One speaker event turned out great ... in fact, all our events this spring got great turnouts and good reviews. So a huge thanks goes out to all of you who attended and participated! We hope you got at least a little something out of it, if not lots. And based on your comments on our surveys or from you directly, we're starting to plan our fall events ... it might seem like we're on summer vacay since we won't have any summer events, but rest assured we're working hard behind the scenes.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for future programs and events, we'd love to hear them! Email us at or leave a comment here.

We'll be posting dates for our fall events as soon as we set them. And we'll be announcing the Student Competition winners soon too ... so don't forget us completely in the end-of-the-school-year craziness! And good luck with your exams and final projects!
