In his second term as serving as a mentor for AIGA Chicago, Mig Reyes and his group had a common goal throughout the program: get better connected with the Chicago design community.

Even though they love going to see big-name speakers come to large professional events, they know there’s something special about an independent party with local speakers & music. So they’re throwing the next Merge party, called ‘Reply All’. It’s the kind of event where you don’t make contacts, you make friends.

It’s like a conference after-party without the long day of conferencing. Expect hilarious guest speakers, local Chicago DJs spinning good vibes and art auctions with proceeds going to Reason to Give.

We are proud to be an official sponsor of this event. The last Merge party had 400+ attendees, and this one is sure to be a hit too. I hope to see you out Dec 10, at Evil Olive, in Chicago. RSVP at http://letsmerge.us. Come say hi. I’ll be the tall drunk one.
