The Wild Wild West of Design: Tapping Canada's Untapped Job Markets
Speaker: NICK ASIK - Creative Director, WAX
Nick Asik’s career has taken him to Calgary, Toronto, Los Angeles and New York – and not in that order. With more than 300 awards under his belt, some would ask Nick why he chose to go back to Calgary after making such a name for himself. And his answer: Calgary is a creative blank slate – be it a stepping stone to anywhere you want to work in the world, to avoiding the pressures of bigger markets. The bottom line: there are pockets all over the country where there are agencies chasing world class creative, and they’re looking for people who are aligned with that goal. Nick opens student’s eyes to the opportunities from coast to coast to coast in Canada.
