This event is now SOLD OUT.

Please join us for our most anticipated event of the year, a gala in celebration of Fellows Doug Scott and Fritz Klaetke.

Were gathering for a verbal Festschrift—an evening sure to pique the curiosities of our Fellows, Doug Scott and Fritz Klaetke, and their guests! A collection of speakers will give insightful mini-talks on topics such as typography, style, cartography, and architecture as they relate to design in Boston.

Traditionally, a Festschrift—a German term—is a celebratory publication given to a respected person to honor them through a collection of contributions by their close colleagues and friends. Our 2016 Fellows are design connoisseurs with interests across the board. We’re celebrating them with a verbal collection of mini-talks by local design experts.

The AIGA Boston Fellow Award recognizes seasoned designers and other major figures who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in practice and conduct within the Boston design community and the AIGA Boston chapter. For further details on the Fellows, please refer to our formal announcement.

Doug Scott

Doug’s devotion to the profession and its role in society is contagious to anyone who has had the pleasure to work or study with him. A significant presence in the Boston design scene since the mid 70s, his design and typography was highly influential on the ground breaking design team at WGBH. He is a kind and supportive mentor, a beloved educator and “a treasure trove of knowledge” that we are lucky to have in the AIGA community.

Fritz Klaetke

Fritz has been a leader in the Boston design community since the early 90s. His quiet yet thoughtful and engaging personality has gained him respect from leading designers from around the world. He is a great collaborator who brings a unique perspective that drives his highly detailed and inspiring work. He has a sincere interest in mentoring young designers, always pushing hard and with purpose. We’re happy to have his influence in our AIGA community.
