Regardless of whether you are an in-house designer or work for yourself as an independent designer, you’re going to run into legal questions. These questions can touch on everything from intellectual property concerns, payment disputes, and hiring complexities, to contracts and project management. Many designers find it difficult to even define what their legal questions might be, and the perceived cost of legal services can be intimidating.
This AIGA Portland Career Tools event is your opportunity to informally sit down with a handful of friendly and knowledgeable attorneys to gain a better understanding of the legal issues that impact designers and best practices for resolving disputes and protecting the interests of your business. Because this is a public event, the attorneys won’t be able to provide personalized legal advice, but they will be ready and eager to help you better understand the law and how it impacts your design practice.
This Career Tools is geared towards:
Designers, Creative Industry Managers, and Principals
Individuals who are creating products, content, and programs for the marketplace
Hiring Managers, Project Managers, Fiscal Managers, and Team Leaders
Join other Portland designers and AIGA members for an engaging and informative breakfast and roundtable discussions to compare notes on your business challenges and successes, and get your legal questions answered by professionals who are Design-Informed (and very friendly!).
Snag your ticket now and join us Friday morning, February 1, 2019 from 8:30–10:00 a.m. We will greet you with coffee and donuts at the handsome new offices of 52 Limited in NE Portland. This event is open to AIGA members as well as non-members. See you there!
