... I’m thinking it will focus on the importance of having a firmly established set of principles for the work you do. Having those in place is an effective way to exist as an independent designer and to do the projects you’re most passionate about.
From there, the talk will cover a host of my projects that involve community engagement, political campaigning, getting active in your city, art show experiments, and ways to always keep pushing your design practice. Lots of slides/visuals/designs. (Some GIFs, too!)
It will also touch on working in flyover country (not a place known for great design), running a small business, making your city more awesome, and building up a solid client list. And really, why design can be a great career path while allowing you to make a difference in the world with your talents.
