AIGA Pittsburgh’s PGH365 2012 event was held on March 22 and showcased 315 entries of design work submitted from the region’s most talented professionals and students. The entries ranged from print campaigns, publications, posters, websites and multimedia which demonstrated the designer’s role, process and the value of design to the community.
