This semester we had the pleasure of two guest speakers. On May 10th, Shayne Alexander came to share his journey to becoming an art director at BBDO Worldwide. Shayne is a recent graduate of City Tech and a former photography student of mine. He shared some of the projects that he’s worked on, talked about the process and how taking advantage of opportunities helped him get where he is today.
Then on May 17th Mike Rush, art director at Wine & Spirits Magazine stopped by. Mike is a from co-worker of mine from Black Enterprise Magazine. He shared about his journey from art student to art director at Arista Records and now at Wine & Spirits. Hopefully they gave you answers to some of your burning questions about work in the real world and designers, and their stories offered inspiration.
