    NOTICE!!! Date changed for this event…it is now Thursday, September 25!

    Join us for our September Professional Development Series Luncheon – The One That Got Away with Matt Lehman.

    What do you do with all of those unused ideas? Leftover comps? Almost finished things you didn’t have the gumption to present? Little snippets of gizmos that floated off your artboard in Illustrator? Did the client kill the best logo option? Or even worse, did the client kill the entire project? Or THE ultimate worst – did the client “kill” the project only to hire someone else later? Ouch.

    Matt will show you behind scenes looks at rejected projects, and how to salvage the ideas left to die on some hard drive or your Dropbox account. Sometimes it’s having the client sign off on permitting you to show non-final work. Sometimes it’s re-purposing the work without the client’s logo for another appropriate project. Sometimes it’s going back and fighting harder for the best option to win. Sometimes it’s just about learning a new technique. And sometimes it’s turning these failures into a lecture… like this one.

    Together we’ll laugh, cry and reminisce about projects that went to into early retirement…but we’ll discover fresh ways to unearth those lost treasures.

    Doors will open at 11:30 am for networking with the presentation and lunch beginning at noon.

    Reservations required by Friday, September 19. AAF-GE members are FREE, guests/nonmembers only $15 per person.

    Join us for our November Professional Development Series Luncheon featuring David Shing, AOL’s Digital Prophet.  Shing spends most of his time watching the future take shape across the vast online landscape. The rest he spends talking to people about where things are headed and how we can get the most out of it. Shing has spent most of his adult life in the digital world working for both large and small creative companies. He served as AOL’s European head of media and marketing before taking on his current mantle. Engaging, witty, and refreshingly candid, Shing provides both historical perspective and current context as he lays out his vision of the brave, new world of marketing to come – one he believes will belong to those willing to embrace change and take risks now, and one that he dearly hopes will suck a great deal less. The opportunities are incredible. The rewards are real. And Shing’s here to show you the way. That, after all, is what prophets do.

    Doors will open at 11:30 am for networking with the guest speaker and lunch beginning at noon.

    Reservations required by Wednesday, November 12. AAF-GE members are FREE, guests/nonmembers only $25 per person.
