Judy Kirpich Is Honored with AIGA Fellows Award

Grafik CEO Judy F. Kirpich was recently honored with the prestigious AIGA Fellows Award.  Since its inception in 1999, AIGA has presented the Fellows Award to distinguished members of the graphic design industry who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in their local design community and within their AIGA chapter.

Nominations for the Fellows Award are highly selective and based on principals that are essential to preserving and growing the design industry; education, writing, leadership, reputation and practice.  Ms. Kirpich is only one of two Fellow Award recipients to be honored by the Washington, DC AIGA chapter.
Ms. Kirpich is a Montgomery County resident and a founding partner of Grafik. She has lived and worked in the Washington, DC metropolitan area for years, and is an active member of AIGA Washington, DC chapter.
