Join AIGA Cleveland for the third annual INtrospective: A One-Day Conference for In-House Creatives. It will be a day of education, insight and inspiration, featuring some of the most dynamic and influential in-house creative professionals, both locally and nationally.
After the success of 2016’s conference, we are excited to bring you more speaker presentations and working sessions tailored to in-house professionals of all levels. Refuel your creativity and connect with your peers. You’ll return to work inspired and re-energized.
Not an in-houser? No matter where you spend your day designing, there will be plenty of great information to take away.
Your True Voice: Harnessing Emotional Intelligence As A Creative Catalyst
It's so easy to fall into the trap of going through your creative process by rote. What if instead you could to tap into deeper parts of your creative self to generate stronger, more authentic ideas? That's where emotional intelligence comes into play. Join Devin O'Bryan as he tells his tale of mental illness, redemption, and how he found his creative voice in an unlikely place.
Devin O’Bryan is a designer-educator with an eye for talent and a heart for cultivating that talent. For nearly 5 years, he has been co-creating within IBM IoT, IBM Corporate HR , and IBM Design’s global education efforts with programs like IBM's Design Bootcamp Experiences, IBM Designweek events, as well as building and maintaining the intensive, award-winning Maelstrom internship program from scratch. He is currently the Creative Director for IBM's internal incubator called Project Whitespace.
Devin’s personal mental health journey has informed huge swaths of his educational and professional curricula. As such, authenticity is the cornerstone of Devin’s design and life philosophies, and his patient wife and two kids keep him genuine every single day.
