A few Fridays ago I was lucky enough to score a free ticket to see Michael Bierut speak as part of Creative Mornings put together by Tina Roth Eisenberg of the swiss miss blog. Instead of dragging myself to work first thing I hurried over to DUMBO and managed to get one of the last seats in the house at Galapagos. I thought I was going to have a terrible view, but it turns out it was great! I was up in the balcony, at a little table and a lovely seat mate. This picture is from the swiss miss website, I was too afraid that if I tried to take a picture with my phone I would manage to drop it into the water below so I didn’t chance it. The talk was all about clients, how to hold on to the good ones, ditch the bad ones, and how even Michael Bierut gets bad ones sometimes. What a great speaker. And to top it off there were a few free goodies to be had. A rep from Blurb was there showing off all the lovely book options and giving away a code for a free book and a rep from Behance was there giving away a sample from their line of action journals. Once the video has been edited you can check it out (and other Creative Morning talks) via Vimeo. And to top it off, I got a few macarons form Almondine which is right next store. Yum.
