For more information, visit A Day in the Life Conference

The A Day in the Life Conference is an exclusive design event to be held in Baltimore, Maryland, at Brown Center in the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) on Saturday, April 24, 2010. The A Day in the Life Conference was established to give design professionals and students within the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area an opportunity to come together in a cohesive environment in order to focus on the advances and challenges of the design profession and network with fellow creative professionals.

This unique event will break into small group sessions (you get to choose what you attend) to hear presentations and actively discuss important topics such as The Business of Design, The Art of Branding, The Green Movement & The Creative Industry and more. We’re featuring guest speakers including Ellen Lupton (curator of contemporary design), Jill Tanenbaum (President and Creative Director of Jill Tanenbaum Graphic Design & Advertising Inc.), Brian Hock (award winning designer and co-owner of DesignerID) and more.

In the afternoon, we will feature a Creative Jam Session, a unique space of exhibitors and inspiration stations where attendees can network, mix and mingle.

Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be provided.

The sole purpose of the conference is to rejuvenate the creative spirit in the design profession, foster an environment for networking, and offer opportunities for learning. The first of its kind in Baltimore, this event intends to set the bar and further bring attention to the innovative energy that thrives in the city.
