Tonight in Cleveland

what would you do?

Tonight I will be presenting my new lecture for the AIGA Cleveland chapter. The presentation is titled Why We Brand, Why We Buy, and will provide a historical look at how we brand ourselves and the world around us, and how this influences the products we buy and why we live the way we do.

Thursday, January 10, 2008 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Cocktails and light food from 6-7, lecture starts at 7 p.m.

It was very nice to meet you and take home one of your books.

The talk was very interesting, I love hearing background and theories as to why humans behave the way they do. Valuable info for designers.
