Digital Seminar at La Salle University

Published on

I was recently invited to speak at the La Salle University Digital Arts Seminar. It was a great opportunity to share my experience, story, and tips to the next generation of designers, developers, and do'ers.

I had a deck where I talked about my background, @maidenmedia history, and what I expect of new hires from college. At the end I showed an advertisement that was a great example of changing the game.

I hope I inspired some, and who knows, maybe a lucky few will become part of the newest intern class at @maidenmedia. I was also able to check out some of the department's newest collaboration room, maclabs, and studios.
