AIGA Jacksonville re:CHARGE Conference April 3-5

AIGA Jacksonville reCharge Conference

Designers and other professional creatives in the fields of advertising and communications often get lost in the daily grind. The result — Creative Monsters that become cranky, restless and bored.

Presented by the Jacksonville Chapter of the AIGA, and sponsored by Font Bureau, re:CHARGE is a 2.5-day conference designed to re-energize and inspire the Creative Monster in each of us. The 2008 conference will be held April 3-5 in Downtown Jacksonville, Florida.

Professional designers and leaders in communication design will conduct exciting workshops. Workshops that will give you the opportunity to feed your Creative Monster, socialize with other designers, understand new concepts and methods in design, and participate in hands-on activities to reinvigorate their creativity. There’s also a day set aside for sightseeing and socializing, something every Creative Monster needs.

re:CHARGE is the only conference dedicated to rehabilitating Creative Monsters and educating owners on their care and feeding. After attending re:CHARGE, most designers find they have a greatly increased chance of living a creative, productive life with their monsters.

I will be speaking on Friday and moderating a panel discussion on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
