Today Patrick Coyne, Editor and Designer of Communication Arts magazine, made an appearance at Arnold Hall, delivering the best presentation I attended thus far (may have had to do with his presentation style and skills). Patrick tied each decade’s social, political and art based influence to the evolution of Communication Arts. It was fun to see some of his favorite selections of what he referred to as, “designs using minimum expense.” He gave great advice with a heavy vail of optimism leaving admiration from my end. Speaking about not ‘burning out’, using criticism positively and mentioning how some creative professionals gather inspiration and generate some of their successes. I’ll end with a quote by Patrick Coyne I found exceptionally enlightening, “This is one of the few professions where everything around you can enhance your ideas.” I truly love these events and appreciate the value in getting the most out of my education here at SCAD. This presentation was a wonderful example of that.
