Design LAB • October 7-8 • Seeking Mentors

Design LAB: Learn and Become was conceived by AIGA Honolulu over a decade ago. Roughly 20 high school students from across the island are nominated by their teachers to participate in this fun but intensive weekend workshop.

Design LAB 2017 • October 7 + 8 • Moanalua High School

From 8am to 3pm on both days, local design professionals serve as presenters and mentors, giving the students an overview of design basics in the form of short presentations, creative exercises, and ultimately the production of a simple design piece (like a poster or postcard) from concept to completion.

Call for Mentors!

Mentors have returned year after year to participate in this event that is a chance to meet and catch up with your fellow professional designers and help to inspire the next generation of designers in a weekend that ends up being an incredibly rewarding experience. If you are interested in mentoring or learning more, please shoot an email to Chris Magpoc at

Which of these fresh faced students will be our fellow professionals in a few years?








“This was a really wonderful experience and was worth sacrificing the weekend. I commend those designers for taking time out of their schedules just to teach us.” –Design LAB participant
