Special thanks to OpenEye for sponsoring the open bar, and to our members and chapter sponsors, Designtex and Arlon, for another wonderful year!

The New York Chapter hosted a Small Talks. Big Ideas. with Dotdash on Monday, December 8th at the offices of C&G Partners. A group of 18 members got together for a presentation and discussion with Despina Macris and Mark Ross, co-directors Dotdash from Brisbane, Australia.

Despina and Mark took some time from of their New York visit to show members examples of Dotdash's extensive design work, hear about their design philosophy and start in EGD, and how the firm has evolved into an interdisciplinary design studio that focuses on strategic wayfinding and visual communication in the built environment.

We would like to thank Despina and Mark for an inspiring presentation and C&G Partners for hosting the event at their office!
