Ever wonder what other designers do or say to get their jobs? Jill Nussbaum, with three designers gave a group in DUMBO, Brooklyn the opportunity to be a fly on the wall for other designers’ presentations.

Ever wonder what other designers do or say to get their jobs? Jill Nussbaum, with three designers gave a group in DUMBO, Brooklyn the opportunity to be a fly on the wall for other designers’ presentations. Five people recreated actual presentations that won work or solved problems, demonstrating skills in PowerPoint, patter, and bravura. Short descriptions of the original RFP/Design Briefs were presented and pitches presented on stage.

Jill, Creative Director at R/GA, presented work she and the team did for The Human Race, “the world’s largest 10K race to benefit charity“—part of a project for Nike and the Nike Plus project.

Stories from the Front is part of a series put forth by the venerable AIGA/NY chapter.
