"Hugh's dedication to the design industry and his passion for building community are unparalleled. We walked away from Hugh's workshop inspired and energized, which is exactly what we needed as a new AIGA chapter."
-Reggie Tidwell, President AIGA Asheville

“Hugh Weber is bringing a life changing message of what real community is and how we can actually design it. When he speaks about social connection you immediately see how big tech conglomerates have us duped. He’s stealing back words like community, connection and network. We need this! We need Hugh. Don’t miss it."
-Tim Scroggs, Education Co-chair AIGA Asheville
