We want to bring serious attention to the talents of creative professionals and inspire all of us to move forward.”
“This two-day conference is an excellent opportunity for professional
enrichment, designed specifically to address the needs and interests of
individuals working in the creative arts,” added Cesar Rubin, president
of the Art Directors Club of New Jersey. “We all need such exposure
to new ideas and learning experiences to reinvigorate our creativity.
All of us at the Art Directors Club of New Jersey are delighted to work
with so many talented creative professionals at The Design Center at Kean
University to make this conference a reality.”
