Adobe Creative Jam Celebrating Creativity Feb. 9

Adobe Creative Jams, events that demonstrate and celebrate creativity, are taking place all across the country, and Webster University will host the next one on Thursday, Feb. 9, beginning at 7 p.m. in the University Center Sunnen Lounge.

In both the School of Communications and the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, faculty have recommended their best students to compete on design teams in a three-hour charrette showdown. The student teams will be comprised of graphic designers, photographers, and video editors.

At 8 p.m., three local leaders will begin the Creative Jam Talks as they present their creative processes to the audience. The presenters include Michael Logsdon, a creative director, Demond Meek, a photographer, and representatives from Cheree Berry Paper, a graphic design firm.

Creative professionals will also be available to review portfolios for attendees who have made an appointment by Tuesday, Feb. 8. Appointments will begin at 7 p.m. and can be made here. At least five pieces of recent work uploaded to Behance.net will be required to participate in the review.

At 9 p.m., the student teams participating in the Creative Jam Competition will share their work inspired by a theme announced just three hours earlier. The audience and a panel of judges will vote on the winners.

Food and beverages will be available. For more information and to RSVP, please visit nvite.co/webster.

Parking will be available in the Garden Park Plaza garage at 568 Garden Ave. (#10 on the Campus Map).
