We have a fantastic opportunity that presented itself. Ken Carbone will be passing through San Antonio, and graciously reached out to the AIGA SA board about giving a brief talk, and we were happy to take him up on it. So we’re having a very informal conversation, Q & A-type session this Saturday morning on the lovely roof-top at Paramour.
Ken Carbone is creative director and co-founder of Carbone Smolan Agency, an award-winning NYC branding agency, with clients including Christies, the Louvre, Morgan Stanley, W Hotels and Credit Suisse, among many others. He is also an AIGA Fellow, AIGA Medalist and a professor in the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts, lecturing on design and creative inspiration, and contributes regularly to FastCoDesign.
He knows a great deal about running a very successful design business for over 40 years, and will be sharing that expertise with us.
Come join us Saturday, March 11th. Talk will begin promptly at 11:00am, so please arrive early if you'd like to order coffee or one of Paramour's amazing brunch items. There is no fee for this event, but you must register.
