Back to my alma mater.

On Thursday I took a trip back to good old Bobby Mo to be on a design panel for this "Creativity at Work" program they put on every year. It's basically an informational career day with a focus on the creative fields like design, advertising, video, etc. It was a bit surreal because I had attended as a student several years and now I was on the other side offering my (small bit of) wisdom to the bright young stars of tomorrow, or something like that. I felt a bit honored that they had asked me to be there. My fabulous fellow panelists were :

Joe Meadows—"Senior Multimedia Developer" (aka: web guy) over at American Eagle that I know from many AIGA happy hours
Amy Joy—a lovely designer for Robert Morris who was brought in at last minute (shes does a wonderful job on our alumni magazine!)
Doris Short—Denmark native, AIGA board member, and a very knowledgeable in-house designer over at GlaxoSmithKline

All in all it was a successful event, quite a few students showed up and it was great to catch up with quite a few of my professors that were there.
