It’s Not Ready Yet: The Perfectionist’s Struggle
May 10, 2017 | 11:00AM – 12:00PM
Creating perfect work isn’t easy and can often be a hindrance to progress. Just ask Christine Herrin, graphic designer and hand letterer by trade (perfectionist by habit). In this beginner-level session, Christine will discuss the decision-making process as it pertains to design. How do you decide when to stop finessing and ship out a project? And how can one manage their time in a way that frees up space for inspiration and new opportunities?

A Cross-Country Journey of Rapid Creation
May 10, 2017 | 3:30PM – 4:30PM
Nearly two years ago, Craig Winslow and a friend had the idea to create light installations in 15 cities across the U.S. as they made the westward move from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon. The Kickstarter-funded art project chronicled Craig’s cross-country adventure, which changed his design mentality, sparked creative inspiration, and ultimately landed him an Adobe Creative Residency. Learn about Craig’s passion project and hear firsthand about his recent art-fueled sojern from L.A. to Austin for SXSW.
