Josh Higgins in Charleston, July 24

Josh & President Obama

On Friday, July 24 the High Gravity Design series will host Josh Higgins, Creative Director at Facebook, for an inspiring talk about communicating and designing for change. The event will be held at the Charleston Music Hall, it’s FREE to attend (please RSVP at this AIGA SC link), beer and wine will be sold, and it will run from 6:30 to 8:30.

Josh is currently manager for the Communication Design team at Facebook, a multidisciplinary team of art directors, designers, writers, film makers, and engineers who’s mission is brand development and communication for Facebook. In 2013 Josh concluded his role as Design Director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign. As the Design Director, Josh built and led the design team for the historic 2012 political campaign in which the web, design, and technology played a pivotal role. With roots in both advertising and graphic design, Josh’s work has earned him national honors.

Josh dedicates a percentage of his time to social causes. Finding creative ways to support them has manifested into successful exhibits and charitable projects, like The Hurricane, So-Cal and Haiti Poster Projects in addition to lecture series with photographers, designers and film makers with proceeds donated to various charitable organizations.

This High Gravity Design event is produced and hosted by the Charleston Music Hall, AIGA SC and Charleston Parliament. Many thanks to Josh, Gene Crawford and Charles Carmody for making this event possible, and hope to see everyone at the Music Hall. I’ve heard Josh speak, and it’s an inspiring show.
