Mentor Program Summer Session: Designer Talk: #2

Mentor Program Summer Session: Designer Talk: #2

Designer, Illustrator and Artist Mike McQuade spoke to the AIGA Mentor Program last tuesday hosted at Manifest Digital. Mike shared his beautiful work, creative journey and design process with the group. Here’s what a few of the attendees thought of the event:

“Mike McQuade is the perfect example of a designer doing work that he feels is best and most exciting for him, taking the necessary risks, and finding great success and happiness in what he is most passionate about.  His success is great encouragement to all designers ready to do what they love.”

– Chelsie Tamms

“Mike is not only extremely talented, but incredibly self-motivated and hard working (which is always half the battle). It was so inspiring to hear how his self-initiated projects have played such an important role in transforming his career. I left there completely motivated to get started on my own projects! Thanks for the talk, what a great designer to give a microphone in front of 40 young professionals and students.”

– Brittany Hayes @brittanylhayes

Big thanks to Mike McQuade for taking the time to speak to us and to Manifest Digital for hosting us!
