Please join us for a night of design and storytelling with Rich Tu, a VP of Design at MTV.
“Art of the Pivot”
This presentation is about shifting one’s creative approach over time in a dynamic industry. We will look as a variety of Rich Tu’s work, ranging from illustrations in the The New York Times, animation for Coca-Cola, sneakers for Nike and MTV rebrands (among others) to show how one can maximize their skillset. You will hear insider stories of triumphs, failures, and everything in-between. The goal is to be better prepared (and entertained!) for the challenges ahead.
