Good thing we like to talk!

CurlyRed is thrilled/humbled to announce that M. Kendall Ludwig, president and principal designer, will be presenting at 2 conferences in April! Wow!

On Saturday, April 6th, at the Center for the Arts at Towson University (Kendall's alma mater!), Kendall will be presenting at AIGA's Ink and Pixels Student Design Conference. Here's our topic:

Everything I Have Learned About The Business of Design I Learned from Tim Gunn

Should I work for someone else, freelance, or start my own firm? What's networking and where do I begin? Should I use a contract and what should it say? These are just a few of the questions we will address in this session. We will take a look at one woman's path from a graphic design major at Towson University to being the president and principal designer of a 6-year-old firm, what she's learned along the way, and why the Tim Gunns of the world can help you "make it work."

AND then a week later on April 13th, also at Towson University, Kendall will be speaking at the Women in Leadership Conference! Our topic for that one:


My Journey from Artist to Entrepreneur
Are you planning for your life 10 years from now? Are your choices based on where you are going or where you want to be? And more importantly, what's the "why" behind it all? This session will take a look at one woman's path from a graphic design major at Towson University to being the president and principal designer of a 6-year-old firm, what she's learned along the way, and the "why's" that have set her apart. This session will show students how to take an objective look at the choices they have now to best prepare them for the future, and how to become a leader where they are now.


Holy moley, we better get going on putting these presentations together. We are planning on using Prexi, an awesome and free tool that beats the pants off of PowerPoint, and allows the user to design a completely non-linear, interactive presentation!


If you'll be in the Towson area in April, please come say hi!

Monthly Pinterest: Bring on Spring!


Ok, you caught us! We missed February in our Monthly Pinterest feature. So here's one for March, bright and early for your enjoyment.

It's not a secret that late winter is NOT our favorite time of year. But we are already seeing the overflow of yummy Easter candy take over store shelves and the days getting a little longer. And before you know it, flowers will be blooming, birds will be chirping, and light-jacket-only weather will return once again!

At CurlyRed, we love that spring brings new life, new color, new design inspiration. This year, we are especially excited to see Monet-esque prints in fashion—might be time for a wardrobe update!
 
good design for everyone
