Andrea Marks is an associate professor and coordinator of the graphic design program at Oregon State University. She is also producer and co-director of the film Freedom on the Fence, a documentary about the history of Polish posters.

Her recent book/eBook Writing For Visual Thinkers explores various ideas about writing in the 21st century.
In this engaging presentation co-hosted by AIGA and F+W Media, designer Frank Chimero will reveal everything he’s learned
from six years in business—yet none of it is about business. It’s about
the work, but not how to do it. No silver bullets. No recipes. No
pictures. Just learning from mistakes.
Great designers need more than good ideas to succeed. In this exclusive members-only webinar series, visionary
designers pair with Adobe experts to offer guidance to help lead
you to your next breakthrough.
