What: On Design: Jeff Archibald

Join us on March 8th at 5:15pm in FAB 2-20 for our guest lecture series with Jeff Archibald! Jeff Archibald co-founded Paper Leaf, an award-winning Edmonton-based digital design agency, in 2009. Since its inception, Paper Leaf has grown from a shop of 2 people producing $50 business card designs in a bedroom office to a team of 10 people delivering six-figure web applications. In this candid talk, Jeff will dive into the things people don’t tell you about starting and running your own digital agency – from the type of work you’ll end up doing, to the types of clients to expect, to the skills you need to succeed, to the numbers behind the business. If you’re aiming to get a job as a designer at an agency, this will give you insight into how the business runs and what’s in your boss’ head; and if you have dreams of starting your own agency, this will pull back the curtain on doing just that.
