Some of the work that will be on display.

The Troy Innovation Garage is hosting New York State of Design, a new show of work by upstate New York designers, this Friday, September 29. It's a curated show organized by the upstate New York chapter of the design professional association AIGA. Blurbage:

Entries for the show spanned a wide range of logos, branding, public awareness campaigns, posters, books, packaging, app design, motion graphics, and typefaces. Most works were created as part of a business strategy, but others were student work, personal, or from the pure joy of creation. ...
Three of the country's most respected designers, Justin Ahren, J. Dontrese Brown, and Debbie Millman, juried the show. Each has selected one piece for their Judge's Choice Award.

There will also be a panel discussion there Friday evening featuring some notable local design pros:

+ Melissa Mangini, managing editor of the Albany Business Review
+ Richard Lovrich, creative director for Proctors
+ Aray M. Till, managing editor of Beekman 1802 Almanac Magazine
+ Sara Tack, creative director of Smith and Jones

The opening night event is 5:30-9 pm during Troy Night Out. The panel discussion starts at 6:30 pm. Awards will be announced at 8 pm. Admission is free.
