Tad Carpenter Lecture
Last night we had the honor to host one of the most accomplished designers of our time, Tad Carpenter! All the thanks go to the USM Art+ Design department and USM’s RISE Creative student design agency. This unique event began with a tour of the Art + Design department building, allowing the students to interact with Mr. Carpenter before the actual event even began. Tad was able to sit in on design classes, listen to student presentations on current work, and also look at student portfolios. The evening lecture began with another opportunity to speak with Tad, especially for the visitors from LSU and MSU. Tad Carpenter was very open to talking to everyone individually and gave design students a memorable and positive experience to interact with a professional in the design industry. The lecture itself was a perfect insight into the professional world, his journey to get where he is today, and how he keeps his designs fresh (hint, its a constant practice). Tad Carpenter followed up the lecture with a workshop the next morning exclusively for the Rise students who worked hard to bring him here to USM.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible and also thank you to all the people who came out last night, especially those who traveled from other schools! Keep up with us on social media and check the website’s calendar to stay updated on future events like these!
