Stoke your design inspiration and connect with your creative expression. Hear from:

  • David Carson, Emmy-nominated, multi-award-winning graphic designer, creative director, artist, surfer, and recipient of graphic design's highest award, the AIGA Gold. Truly embodying the Art Is Life philosophy, he’s consumed by design and compelled to inspire other creatives to be expressive and unique.
  • Martha Gill, graphic illustrator who started her own small business, Gilded Nopal, on Etsy. Her artwork, an extension of her person and her Mexican culture, focuses on immigrant themes, feminism, and inclusivity. Martha talks about how success has come from her ability to be vulnerable in her art — sharing personal experiences, the people she knows, the challenges she faces, and the changes she sees in her community — and about the difficulties of starting and maintaining a small business.
