Don't forget to sign up for SPD's Creative Lab: Conceptual Thinking with Ed Levine this Saturday, April 17!

For everyone who has ever wondered ‘how did they come up with that’ solution or felt ‘I wish I had thought of that idea.’ The goal is to put ‘ART’ back in Art Direction. Learning how to take edited ‘abstract’ manuscripts or memos and develop the skills needed to create fresh personal solutions instead of literal interpretations of the text.

Access to Adobe InDesign during the workshop is required.

Space is limited. SPD Professional Members receive 50% off.
