Join us for a discussion with the in-house designers of the Cleveland Museum of Art, led by Tom Barnard and Greg Donley, each of whom has over 20 years of experience working at the CMA.
Those who can arrive early at 5:45 p.m. can take a special behind-the-scenes tour of the museum's in-house design studio and production facilities before a quick walk to the neighboring Barking Spider for drinks and an extended discussion at 6:30 p.m. The art museum guys will moderate as we discuss the benefits of working as an in-house designer, the skills needed to navigate an inside job, and the unique perks and challenges of working full-time for a single client.
Whether you're a freelancer, working at a firm, or currently in-house, step out and join the discussion this month!
