Michael Osborne - AIGA DC Continuum Fund Button Campaign

The fourth AIGA DC Continuum Fund button set designed by Michael Osborne, will premiere today, Monday, November 16, 2009, at the AIGA DC presents Michael Osborne event for the suggested minimum donation of $5.

Michael Osborne is a San Francisco based designer, founder of the non-profit design studio Joey’s Corner, principle of Michael Osborne Design and has been recognized by countless awards & organizations for his stunning work. He believes in supporting good causes through quality design.

Michael founded the design studio Joey’s Corner as a non-profit organization to honor the memory of his son Joseph Michael Osborne. During his presentation, Michael will guide us through the process of setting up a non-profit, finding clients and ways to establish proper funding for a non-profit. Michael will demonstrate the tangible and intangible rewards of helping the organizations that typically cannot afford professional design services.

As President and Creative Director, Michael has created award-winning packaging, corporate identity, and retail design solutions for clients including Jack Daniel’s, Kettle Chips, Gymboree, William-Sonoma, and Target.
