BuzZ March :: Army of One
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 from 7:15 AM to 8:30 AM (EST)
Conceptualizing, Drafting, Designing, Producing, Copywriting, Revising, Printing... and you're in it all alone.
Designers know that not all work is done by an agency in large groups or a departmental team. Often designers find themselves being the single creative force in a variety of industries and companies. Even the lone wolf freelancers sometimes face the trials of the one-person-show. It's expected that the lone creative one may branch into numerous more responsibilities outside of the creative spirit.
In today's job markets it's not uncommon for calling needs of a Jack or Jill-of-all-trades where designers find themselves to be the entire team-in-one.
Join Andrew Lichtenhan, Tech Writer and Graphic Specialist for WIX Filters, in discussing how designers can strategize and cope with the demands of being the all-in-one workforce and design department machine. What can you bring to the table successfully when it's you, and you alone, under the deadline?
AIGA Charlotte BuzZ is a meet-up event geared toward Charlotte area creatives and small business owners/employees. Please come join us for coffee as we discuss a different topic each month. Come to learn or come to share the knowledge you already have. Either way, just come see what all the BuzZ is all about.
About The Spoke Easy (BuzZ venue sponsor)
The Spoke Easy is all about the joy of riding a bicycle. They design and build custom bicycles and offer a gathering space for cyclists and designers. Remember the thrill of riding your first bike, the pumping of the pedals, and the wind through your hair as you set out on an adventure around the block? They want to help you experience that all over again and make cycling a part of your daily life—no stretchy pants required. And while they’re at it, they will build a community of like-minded individuals eager to celebrate all things involving two-wheeled transportation.
