Breaking Creative Barriers in Design Workshop // BUSINESS 341, DESIGN 685

Adrian Cabrero, Multimedia Designer, ENK International

Thursday, July 28th from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, then meets at same time the following week.

Art school may have shown you how to be a designer, but working with clients is an experience unlike any other in the design world. Whether you're a freelancer, a designer within a large team or just beginning to promote yourself, wouldn't it be helpful to have a social circle of professionals available to critique and share current work?

This class goes beyond posting work to online forums and websites, where 80% of feedback is from unknowns. We will be a group of experienced professionals coming together, sharing creative ideas and breaking down roadblocks. During each of the sessions there will be a focus on professional feedback from your peers in the design field and a brief breakdown of 3 important stages of design: Conceptual R/D, Design execution and Finalization.

We encourage everyone to bring in designs that are works in progress or that have hit a creative roadblock. You can look forward to meeting designers from different backgrounds in many stages of their career.

Session I: 7/14

Session II: 7/21

Session III: 7/28

Note: To allow ample time for individual critique, group brainstorming and an environment of positive reinforcement, this class is capped at 10 people, on a first come-first serve basis.

Adrian Cabrero is a multimedia designer based in New York City. He graduated Highest Honors from Pratt Institute in 2006 with a degree in Digital Design & Interactive Media.
