What is PUSH?
PUSH is an ongoing series of handcrafted workshops, salons and events developed to inspire, educate and inform creative professionals,
students and educators dedicated to the field of communication design.
PUSH was developed to expand the learning opportunities of creative professionals at every stage in their careers.
From tips on typography and the lost art of letterpress — to rapidly evolving emerging interactive technologies.
From creating a portfolio for success — to techniques that get your resume noticed.
From how to present your best self in an interview — to mapping out a career shift — and more.
PUSH provides the tools and training to help you keep your career goals on track — and inspiration to kick-start your creativity.
To promote the highest standards of excellence and integrity in communication design by inspiring, educating and informing creative
professionals, students and educators with relevant content and learning opportunities to grow their careers.
