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!

Bright Bright Great Joins The Secret Handshake in NYC

The BBG team recently went to New York City to help to run The Secret Handshake conference at the Art Directors Club in Manhattan.

It always recharges our batteries to help with these events and to get a little inspiration from the speakers, young professionals and students we meet.

We had a great time meeting the 200 different attendees, some of whom came from as far away as Pakistan, and hearing each of the speakers’ perspectives on their work and experience.

A special thanks to Sharlene King (Senior Designer, Morningstar) who MC’d the event and to each and every one of the speakers who contributed to an amazing experience:

The Secret Handshake has previously put on hugely successful conferences in San Francisco at Adobe and in Chicago at Morningstar and we know this year’s event in New York will be no different. The stellar line up of speakers includes designers, illustrators, animators, entrepreneurs, and HR professionals:

BBG is incredibly proud to be involved with such a valuable event for young and aspiring professionals across the creative community. We can’t wait to see those of you who are attending in New York and share insight, inspiration, and ideas.
