James Victore, TOTALLY LIVE. TOTALLY RAW.
"I wanted to make a symposium but all I could come up with was a revolution."- Victore
Take This Job and Love It '13 is a one day sympsium where James breaks down the philosophies he’s followed throughout his career and teaches you how to use these methods to maximize your own life and work.
TTJALI ’13 is the convergence of design and creative arts, personal development and social impact. It’s a place to reignite the passion in both your business and your life—to dig deep into to the fire that made you want to be a creator and fan those flames.

This is a revolution. Designers, writers, artists, small-business owners, educators, anyone who wants to learn how to light up your career, harness your power and make a positive difference in the world—this is for you!

"James Victore is a man of action. He believes that knowing about jazz and wine and auto-racing can make you a better designer. That graphic design is about experiences and stories and using your hands. That the best designs punch you in the gut – or, at the very least, stop you in your tracks. -Jocelyn K. Glei, 99U
"His provocative style extends from his own work to how he encourages others." -Karen Day, CoolHunting
"Guns blazing, James Victore speaks with audacity, candor, and unmatched intensity. His lectures abruptly inspire, offering not a passive call-to-action but a demand for change, promising to light a fire - not only in your heart, but also under your ass." –Jenny Venn, Asst. Prof. of Art, Graphic Design, Univ. of Wyoming
"The opportunity to live and work with James Victore will wildly exceed your expectations. James sees, shares, and understands peoples' potential - and helps you build upon it; there's nothing quite like it." - Scott Belsky, Behance and 99U
"James Victore tells it like he sees it, bringing his highly acclaimed art to life with compelling comments, lively stories and insightful experiences. His wit and wisdom are amazing."
–Gemma Gatti, CEO Portfolio Center
"When all was settled down yesterday evening, my wife looked at me and said, 'You're different. You're happy.' I swear I teared up there and then... And I thank you for changing my future." - J.N., Washington, from the Dinner Series 2011
"I feel intoxicated from all the creative energy, passion and courage that was summoned everyday in Victore's studio. It was a privilage to fail successfully and repeatedly with all of you and I definitely left hungry for more!" -J.Z., Bogota, Colombia, from the Dinner Series 2011
