June Creative Community Meeting

Theme: Creative Briefs - Aligning Expectations & Measuring Results (with Emily Cohen)

What is a creative brief? Why do you need one? When do you write one? We're really excited to welcome special guest speaker Emily Cohen: a business coach for creative professionals.

Learn how to improve how you collaborate with your clients and managers to develop smartly-crafted creative briefs that achieve results. Creative briefs are typically repetitive, long-winded, over reaching, and, at worse, a manifestation of corporate politics and insecurities. The best creative briefs provide a clear set of expectations and define measurable objectives to guide the progress and success of a project. As an added benefit, the creative brief and the development process can express and support the value and power of thoughtful, strategic design in achieving creative and results-driven solutions.


When: Thursday 14th June, 6pm - 8pm (doors 5.30pm)
Where: FLDWRK Costa Mesa, 270 baket St E, Ste 200, Costa Mesa, CA
Fee: This event is FREE and open to our whole community. Sign up and let us know you're coming. Bring a friend!
