A CreativeMornings Field Trip: #FlagAustin Workshop

Join CreativeMornings for a unique Design Thinking workshop, hosted by Austin designer Michael Kriegshauser.

Austinites are filled with pride for their city. Whether it’s breakfast tacos, live music, or ‘keeping it weird," we never lack for an Austin-based topic to insert into polite, fawning conversation. But is there a unifying symbol for the city we love? We have bats, longhorns, moon towers, and a common connection to the word “y’all,” but no recognizable banner—no beloved flag to fly when we want to show our connection to this violet crown. In this workshop, we will use Design Thinking exercises to investigate our own personal, visual expression, and explore what a renewed Austin flag design could be. The workshop will also serve to kick off an ongoing content series, #FlagAustin, which will feature the personal stories of Austin citizens along with their own, personal flag designs.

Facilitators: Michael Kriegshauser and Ben Thoma

Michael Kriegshauser is a local graphic designer, amateur flag-tivist, and design thinking facilitator. He currently works as a Creative Director at Dell Technologies.

Ben’s early career focused on creating brand campaigns as an Art Director and Creative Director at advertising agencies in New York and Austin. Currently at Spredfast, Ben manages the creative process and serves as creative production coordinator for the marketing team.
