How To Build (And Keep Building) Your Dream Job Out Of A Hundred Crazy Pieces

AIGA Boston is excited to kick off the 2018-2019 season with an inspiring talk by Stefan G. Bucher.

Bonus: September is Member Appreciation Month. This event is free for AIGA members!

How do we find human connection in 2018? Is it realistic to think we can nurture relationships with our peers, our clients, and our families while also creating work that pays our bills AND makes us proud? How do we see beauty in the world when anxiety runs rampant?

Designer and illustrator Stefan G. Bucher answers these questions and more. Along the way, he will share behind-the-scenes stories about his favorite pieces for clients, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Blue Man Group, 826LA and the Echo Park Time Travel Mart, and directors Judd Apatow and Tarsem. He will also discuss his new book LetterHeads: An Eccentric Alphabet. (While he’s in Boston, he may even reminisce about his time at Modernista!)

Stefan’s talk is perfect for energizing artists and other creatives in ways they will find useful, inspiring and—we’re talking about Stefan here—entertaining.
