In today’s world, making meaningful contact with industry professionals is challenging. Of course your work speaks for itself, but how can you effectively present your work in a productive and memorable way?
In this seminar, you will learn what components comprise a successful brand, and learn how combining and even integrating your print and social media tools can make the strongest first impression with your targeted audience.
Participants will learn about establishing brand identity from celebrated designer, Tom Varsico, and hear first hand from photographers Frank Relle and Eliot Dudik about their experiences putting their brand to work for them. Lastly a panel of industry professionals will share with the audience which means of presenting your work in a memorable manner are best for their respective business. A publisher, gallery director, museum curator and magazine editor will each offer insights into best practices for catching – and holding – the eyes of key decision makers.
