Our speaker at the february 2011 CreativeMornings was wonderful Debbie Millman. Debbie’s talk is a must see for any student about to enter the world of design. Her talk is titled: The Top 10 Things I wish I Knew When I Graduated College.
A big giant thank you to Sy Abudu for filming and editing the talk.
In case you’re wondering about Debbie’s comment about going by Denim Millbabe in the very beginning, here’s why.

I really loved Debbie’s talk. It was honest, straightforward and conversational. I’ve only been out of school for a year, and a lot of these things I’ve been learning lately. It’s nice to hear it all nicely presented together. Thank you Denim Millbabe!

I’m In graduate school now for visual communications and was able to relate to Debbie’s tips on being able to present portfolio work and clearly articulate a message. Filing this away for mornings when I need to feel inspired! Thanks for sharing.
