Last night, I made a road trip to attend another AIGA event. Debbie Millman, Design Group President of Sterling Brands in NYC, came to Rochester to speak about how and why we – as living creatures – brand.
I had met Debbie several years ago in NYC for one of Hillman Curtis’ video shoots. However, I didn’t have a chance to see her speak until last night.
It was fascinating to see how Debbie connected the dots throughout history to show the socio-evolution of “making and marking.”
After her two-hour presentation, she answered questions from the audience. There were some great questions, but what was most interesting was that her answers, on the fly, were just as well thought out as her actual presentation. I was impressed by her expertise and her insight.
