Never stop learning.
Never rest on your laurels.
Never think you’ve got it all figured out.

After 35 years in the business, David Watts from Baldwin& and Bob Ranew from MSA Marketing share ways to reinvent oneself and stay relevant in an ever changing world.

Both started out as illustrators, turned art directors, turned creative directors. Any ad creative in their 50’s still in this business must be doing something right.


The first 50 people registered will receive a free poster at the event.
