I had a busy morning today, starting with my first appearance at KC Coffee Morning — hopefully not my last. It was fun to meet the people behind the blogs and listen to creatives crack jokes.
Once I was sufficiently caffeinated with a JP’s dark roast, I buzzed over to the Kansas City Art Institute where Dean and I gave a little presentation to Tyler’s Senior Graphic Design class. I hope everyone enjoyed the presentation — the students were really engaged and asked some great questions.
As promised, I’ll post a few of my favorite links and I’ll work on a follow-up post with advice for the soon-to-be job seekers…
These are a few of the sites I follow: the martini shaker* by KC designer extraordinaire Jeremy Fuksa, American Copywriter — a great blog and podcast, Be A Design Group — another great blog and podcast that has a lot of good tips for students, Yewknee — Nasville-area designers, Jeff Croft — a designer at the internationally-known Lawrence Journal World, Adaptive Path — masters of user experience, information architecture, etc., A List Apart — great source for learning more about all things web, 37 signals— designers-turned-entrepreneurs who host one of the best industry-related job boards outside of Cameron Moll’s Authentic Jobs.
