Design education leader Scott Hutchinson teaches you how to take your design career goals from lackluster to brilliant. A small seminar created for those considering a meaningful career in Graphic Design and User Experience. This introduction to the profession is designed to help students see possibilities and discover areas where they can have impact.

This workshop is especially useful for students with previous "unrelated" degrees, and/or who have recently enrolled in the Design Communication Arts or UX certificates. Also relevant for designers looking to advance, exploring a change in design specialty or nearing graduation.
