On Wednesday you will have a chance to speak with professional artist, Ryan Mott. He has created work for large companies like Best Buy, Kodak, and Kraft Foods. He will be sharing information about his college major(s), career path, and experience working as a professional artist. Please think of a few questions you could ask him (about his work, career, or favorite video game). Below I have posted some examples of his recent work.

Amazing Campaign Design.

I saw those cool pictures on the website, so….

“Russian advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi was commissioned to develop this amazing image and press campaign for the Schusev State Museum of Architecture Moscow. The creative team of Polonski Yuri and Demakov Anton created this stunning effect of buildings, which still extend further into the earth. For more images check out here.”

JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge®

You may not have the fastest runners in the field, but your team can still come out a winner (and look great too!) by entering the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series T-Shirt Contest.

The companies with the top two designs will have $1000.00 (USD) donated in their name to the charity of their choice. The two winners will be chosen by popular vote conducted on each race’s Corporate Challenge Facebook page, from the top twenty designs as chosen by representatives of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the Executive Race Committee.

Inspirational Speech

I found this video extremely inspiring. In my opinion, it accurately describes the unfortunate way humanity has been for centuries, and the way it is today. But I find his speech so inspiring because of it.

This speech is performed by Charlie Chaplin in the 1940 film The Great Dictator. THis video was created by “The Lakey Sisters”.
