By attending an AIGA event, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

Interested in networking with other creatives in the AIGA Minnesota Solopreneurs community?

Join us for our monthly noon meeting at the Wedge Table, in the Classroom. Our group discusses all things related to running a design business – both business and creative issues – and collaborates on future meeting topics and events. Come enjoy the company of other independent creative professionals in a casual setting with some tasty food available for purchase.

If you’re already a Solopreneur or just thinking about making the transition, we’d love to include you in our conversation. No registration or advanced RSVP is required. Plan to buy your own lunch and/or beverage.


12:00-1:00 Solopreneurs Meeting
Come network with other independent creatives over coffee or a delicious lunch purchased from our friends at the Wedge Table. Our topic for November is: Biggest Fails: How Do Failures Lead to Success? Bring your stories about that time you learned something the hard way – and how it inspired you to improve. We like to help other Solopreneurs utilize the best practices of self-employment or freelancing all while avoiding the pitfalls we have experienced.

1:00-1:30 Committee Meeting and 2018–19 Planning
This planning session will be a chance to talk about end-of-year events as well as what you want to see for 2019.

Free to attend, all independent creatives are invited.

Leah Meilander
Chair of Solopreneurs
I am Freelance Visual Designer and Artist based in Bloomington, MN. I have over a decade of experience with brand identities, designing for print & digital, website design, event design, as well as marketing strategy & planning. Overall, I'm more of a generalist who specializes in brand strategy, graphic design, and web design.

In addition to being a freelance designer, I am also a lettering and illustration artist. A lot of my custom hand-drawn work appears in my client projects.

When I’m not designing or drawing, I enjoy climbing/bouldering, lifting, going to movies, dancing, and hanging out with family & friends.
