With the namesake domain of graphic design, we have an incredible responsibility to effectively promote the industry
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
GraphicDesign.com, a leading source of news and information about the graphic design industry, has announced the formation of an expert Advisory Council. Membership in the group will be finalized over the course of the next several weeks.
GraphicDesign.com Managing Partner Jim Varnon is looking forward to bringing the Advisory Council to life: “Both individually and as a group, the members of the GraphicDesign.com Advisory Council will represent voices of leadership from within a broad cross-section of our industry. In their capacity as Advisory Council members, they will offer feedback and recommendations in areas such as content, the user experience, and major website initiatives.”
Varnon explained the rationale for seeking the input of an Advisory Council: “With the namesake domain for graphic design, we have an incredible responsibility to effectively promote the industry and provide outstanding graphic design news, information, and opinion for (i) those within the industry, (ii) those seeking to find a graphic design firm, and (iii) students considering a graphic design career or pursuing graphic design jobs.”
Varnon concluded, “The Advisory Council is just one of many efforts we are undertaking to ensure that we positively impact the graphic design industry.”
GraphicDesign.com can already announce two members of the esteemed Advisory Council. Matt Hocking has designed, directed, and lectured on graphic design around the world. After recently establishing the Shillington School of Graphic Design in New York, Hocking is now offering his creative juices to projects that help socially responsible businesses.
Also joining the Council is Dailey Crafton. He is a design lecturer and founder and principal at “live from bklyn,” a Brooklyn-based design studio. Crafton is currently the creative force behind bklyn, taking the time, effort, and thoughtfulness to make sure that the design is rock solid. Before founding “live from bklyn,” Crafton had his roots at L’oréal Paris, where he led multiple promotional design projects.
If others out there have a record of leadership and experience within the graphic design industry and are interested in being considered for participation in the GraphicDesign.com Advisory Council, please contact Julia(at)graphicdesign(dot)com. Only serious applicants will be considered.
