On Sunday, November 15, 2009, the AIGA DC Continuum Fund held a special meet-and-greet gathering for the Continuum Circle donors with an intimate evening party and presentaion with designer Michael Osborne at Pat Taylor’s home in Washington, DC.

We enjoyed lovely hors d’oeuvres and drinks while AIGA DC Advisory Board members Tamera Lawrence and Beth Singer talked about the Continuum Fund. AIGA DC President Jill Spaeth introduced Michael Osborne and he went on to present and give away work from his letterpress company, One Heart Press.

Michael Osborne is also President and Creative Director of the San Francisco-based graphic design firm, Michael Osborne Design. Established in 1981, the firm’s work in corporate/brand identity, package design, and print collateral has been recognized by many competitions for outstanding design. MOD’s work is on display in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, and the National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. Michael also designed the 2002 and 2004 Love Stamps for the USPS.

Special thanks goes out to Joe Carabeo of Astray Productions for photographing the event; AIGA DC board members, Ashley Gilmore and James Hobbs for helping with food and wine; AIGA DC board member Genji Sampson for driving Michael Osborne to the event; and former AIGA DC President Mira Azarm for helping with buttons and wine.
