The Secret Handshake 2015 Recap

The Secret Handshake recently wrapped up their 2015 conference at the Art Directors Club in Manhattan, New York and Bright Bright Great was there to help.

The Secret Handshake is an online advice tool for students and young designers who are looking for no-nonsense advice from creative professionals.

Art Directors Club

At the Art Directors Club we got to meet most, if not all, of the 200 attendees, the amazing volunteers who helped the event run smoothly and each of the inspiring speakers.

We had a great time and we want to thank The Secret Handshake team for another great event and everyone we talked to for making our trip to New York so fun!
