Reverb: A Casual Exchange of Ideas with Melamed Riley


Reverb is a changing monthly discussion among creatives. This month's second Reverb is geared towards students and recently graduated professionals looking for advice on entering — and excelling within — the workforce. Led by Rick Riley and Joseph Hughes of Melamed Riley, one of Cleveland's leading advertising agencies, the discussion will include: Tips on presenting your work, standing out in your job search, what professionals look for when hiring, and how to excel once you land the job.

Gather your questions and prepare for advice from those who were once in your shoes! Riley brings nearly 30 years of agency experience to the table, having written for brands ranging from beer to burgers to hardware to housewares to candy to colleges. And Hughes has forged a designer's eye, journalist's education, and one-time science geek's curiosity into a multi-faceted career that's brought him to all corners of the creative world. Together, they've (probably) seen it all — and have lived to tell about it.

Get inquisitive, network with other creatives, and join an exciting monthly discussion focused on the important issues facing the design profession focused on industry topics.

Reverb is a casual conversation between creatives. Reverbs are typically hosted at a local coffee house or restaurant/bar and basically brings members together to talk about a selected industry topic. The conversation is moderated by a local professional. Topics are selected based on interest expressed from members. If you are an AIGA member and interested in recommending a topic please email

Reverbs are always FREE to attend, always open to members and are occasionally open to non-members. This month's Reverb is open to ONLY AIGA MEMBERS. We host Reverbs year round, so check back for other Reverbs that are open to AIGA Cleveland's friends and non-members.
