The internet dream has become a nightmare as the information we share is increasingly false and misleading, often with tragic real-world consequences. Join designer and illustrator Dan Stiles, whose clients range from Arctic Monkeys and Tom Petty to McDonalds and Google, as he examines our role as creatives tasked with creating, collecting, and disseminating information in this radically altered media environment and what we can do to help restore order.
You’ll learn:

  • The classic techniques of propaganda and how they have been repurposed for digital content
  • How to follow the pathways of disinformation through the new digital media landscape
  • Why traditional safeguards are inadequate to stop the spread of viral lies
  • What we as content creators can do on the front lines of this dystopian war on truth
