On Tuesday May 14th, Steven Asbury (@stevenasbury) came to visit our class and talk about his experiences about Asbury Design Company. Steven Asbury is a graphic designer, an Instructor in the Journalism school, and the owner of Asbury Design. During his presentation, Steven Asbury showed us a lot of great designs. Asbury Design work with a lot of local brands and companies, and make a lot of great advertisings and posters to them, such as Hilton Eugene, BMW Eugene, Forever 10. They also make great websites and interiors design, and we can find all of these in their website. Steven Asbury also gave us a lot of good tips during his presentation. For example, “nothing is easy, just how hard you try to get success.”, and “It is better to study communication than Art if you want to work on advertising in the future.” I totally agree with those tips, and I think all of our class enjoyed his speech.
In order to share more information about Steven Asbury with our class, our group began our twitter conversation one night before Steven Asbury coming. Here are some contents covered on the twitter conversation. Jessyca made a great interacting with our group in that night’s twitter conversation.
