It may not seem like much, but $5 can make a difference. That’s the premise behind the Continuum Fund Button Campaign, which provides a doorway into the fund for those AIGA DC members and friends who may not yet be financially able to join the Continuum Circle. In addition, these buttons will help raise awareness to our general membership of our Continuum Fund. A steady rotation of industry heavies have contributed designs over the past year, including Stanley Hainsworth, The General Design Company, Michael Osborne and last year’s AIGA Fellow Award recipient David Franek.

The newest set is designed by last year’s Show Off winner, Nathan Hill, a 2009 graduate of Corcoran College of Art + Design. Over the past several years Nathan has designed for both boutique studios and large design agencies in the DC area. Fueled by his addiction to design and passion for design education, Nathan recently started his own studio. He says, “a great friend once told me that design is an ever-learning process. It’s a simple notion, but it’s stuck with me and continues to shape how I approach design.”
