Morning Brew: The Power of Personal Projects

Join AIGA Colorado for our virtual Morning Brew Series! It is more important than ever to stay connected so join us for a short 30 minute presentation from industry professionals regarding the topics of health, the future of design, or community.

Now the Good Stuff....

How an intentional personal project can fuel your future. Personal projects have been so key to Josh’s success as a designer and illustrator. In this Morning Brew, he’ll walk you through the principles and steps he has taken when creating personal projects. We’ll go over the principles to select, plan, create, and share your project. Josh will share what has worked and what hasn’t worked for him. Attendees will get an activity sheet that helps them develop a personal project.
