"There is a major disconnect between the life of a design student and the transition to being a design professional," say G. Dan Covert (Graphic Design 2004) and Andre Andreev (Graphic Design 2005). To demystify this transition, they will share the various failures, successes, and surprises from their years in college to their jobs in MTV's on-air design department to starting their own studio, dress code, in New York.

They will also discuss what they've learned about self-promotion, interviews, internships, monetary problems, personal relationships, prison time, first jobs, and the all-around hustle of making it happen. Their new book, Never Sleep: Graduating to Graphic Design, includes examples of their work, from their first undergrad design course through the present day, and side stories and interviews from their mentors, teachers, and peers.

This event is sponsored by the Graphic Design Lecture Series and Sputnik .
