After moving to Minnesota in 2005, I first met Doug Powell, who I cold-called by sending an email asking if he’d be able to meet me for coffee to discuss the local design community and AIGA. At this meeting, Doug welcomed me to the design community with open arms and has since remained a person that I have coffee breaks with and seek advice from. It was a bitter-sweet pleasure to toast and honor Doug at the August 2013 Cocktails with Creatives event in his new endeavor with IBM Design, in Austin TX.
