Start your day off right with an intimate, exclusive breakfast talk by the inimitable Debbie Millman, president of Sterling Brands, chair and co-founder of the Masters in Branding at the School of Visual Arts, host of the award-winning Design Observer podcast “Design Matters,” and President Emeritus of AIGA. Afterward, enjoy a complimentary studio tour of Eye Byte Solutions, the pros behind this year’s Design Week branding.
In early 2003, Debbie Millman received an email with a subject line that read: Begin drinking heavily before opening. The email contained a link that took her to a “blog,” the first-ever online forum about graphic design and branding, and she found herself reading an article that disparaged her entire career to date.
This experience—in tandem with a number of historical rejections and setbacks—sent Millman into deep despair, and she considered a new profession. Join Debbie as she shares her journey with you and offers insight on how the worst moments in your life can actually become the most profound and life affirming.
Light refreshments will be served. Debbie's talk will last from 9:00-10:00am. The studio tour will last from 10:00-11:00am.
