The concept of design covers a lot of territory, and design is a word that’s hard to narrowly define. But we can expect aspects of it to be discussed at the AIGA Louisville Design Week. The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) is the professional association for designers. This is the second-annual design week hosted by AIGA Louisville. It started Monday and runs through Friday. This year’s theme is “Command+Shift.” Creatives will do the usual things one does at conventions — lectures, workshops, network — in locations throughout Louisville, such as the Hite Art Institute at UofL, Doe-Anderson, VIA Studio, Stewart & Associates and Humana. The keynote speaker is the Lost Type Co-Op on Thursday, Aug. 4 at 6 p.m. at the Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University; tickets range from $10-$25.
