Friday, November 22nd at 1:30 PM
Michelle Bird – Art Director at 160over90
Creative Circus Alum- Art Direction (2016)
Michelle is an illustrator and Art Director. After completing the curriculum at The Creative Circus, she took on an apprenticeship at Moxie, and quickly realized how much she didn’t love digital advertising. She soon found IMG Live (Now 160/90) and discovered a love of experiential. She has been with 160/90 for a little over 2 years and has been contributing freelance illustrations to Georgia Trend for around 3 years. Clients she works on include: Bumble, Odwalla, Coca-Cola, Visa, Prudential, Capital One, and Courtyard.
Whitney Patel – Group Creative Director at 160over90
Whitney started out wanting to go into advertising, but thankfully ended up exactly where she was supposed to be — experiential. After graduating from Portfolio Center and working at a few shops including Grey and Red House, she landed at Momentum and realized how much more fun she was having in this niche of the design world. While she’s never strayed from it, she has also owned a cupcake business and a doggie daycare along the way. (She specializes in s’more and banana peanut butter cupcakes) Over the years, she has had the honor to work on Coca-Cola, DIRECTV, Starwood Hotels and now Marriott brands, Symantec, Visa, Under Armour, Capital One, National Car Rental, and T-Mobile.
These events are open to the public (mandatory for students, of course) so if you’re in the neighborhood, come by and enjoy what Whitney & Michelle have to say!
