A Talk About the Stuff That's Hard to Learn
Networking. Client relations. Your duty as a designer. Getting your boss to like you. They don’t teach these things in school because they’re messy, and most folks don’t talk about them because they’re personal.
Minneapolis-based independent graphic designer Seth Johnson will talk intimately about the things that are essential for all designers to master but are unlikely to learn in the classroom.
When you’re out of school, how do you scale the steep learning curve? It ain’t easy, but this should help.
About Seth Johnson
Seth Johnson is a designer, strategist, educator, and principal of Seth Johnson Design, a Minneapolis-based consultancy that works in a wide range of business categories to conceive and implement branding and communications solutions.

Like most Wisconsin natives, Seth is a connoisseur of beer and cheese, but he’s also adept at identifying typefaces in film titles—much to the annoyance of those seated nearby.
