Financially Planning For A Career in Graphic Design

In this lecture I attempt to frame up a potential path for your financial future in graphic design, and what that might look like in terms of actual salary figures, dealing with debt, and planning for retirement. All of the information in this talk applies generally to any career, but the examples specifically in use regard a career in design so you can learn from example what you could expect as you start down this path. Apologies for any repetition or stammering, I had given this lecture 2 times in a row prior to recording this all in 1 night, and my brain and voice were a bit fried and I wobble in-and-out-of-frame a lot.

How Technology Changed Humanity In My Lifetime

In this lecture I detail how the speed of technology really began to ramp out of control from the moment I was born until today. This developmental overlap with my own life gives me a somewhat unique perspective on how to interact with technology and the role it plays in my everyday life. Parallels are drawn between my physical growth and the speed of transistor improvements with modern CPUs. This is a companion lecture to "How technology Acceleration Will Affect The Visual Arts".

The Implications Of Directing The Iceberg

In this lecture I explore how everything we do in life carries an inherent implication with it, and how to use those to our advantage as designers. I cover the large overlap between design and film, along with ways that advertising has changed in recent years to influence people by more covert means.

Norman Doors & The Impact Of Iterative Design

In this lecture I examine what a Norman Door is, and how to avoid designing them. The talk speaks to topics about UI/UX in a digital world, skeuomorphism, and about how many tasks that once fell under the purview of an industrial designer have now become graphic designs tasks due to the digitization of many day-to-day interfaces.
