Josh Higgins: You Do You (Everything Else Is Secondary)

From a touring musician on MCA/Universal Records to Design Director for President Obama to a Creative Director at Facebook, Josh Higgins lived by his mantra of "You do you" and realized that it wasn't about him, it was about we. This took him decades to figure out, but he'll be sharing his secrets in under an hour at this highly anticipated AIGA Charlotte event.

About our speaker:

Currently a Creative Director in The Factory at Facebook, Josh heads a  multidisciplinary team of art directors, designers, writers, filmmakers, and engineers who share a mission of brand development/communication for for the social phenomenon. In 2013 Josh concluded his role as Design Director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign. As the Design Director, Josh built and led the design team for the historic 2012 political campaign in which the web, design, and technology played a pivotal role. With roots in both advertising and graphic design, Josh’s work has earned him national honors.

Josh also dedicates a percentage of his time to social causes. Finding creative ways to support them has manifested into exhibits and charitable projects like The Hurricane, So-Cal, and Haiti Poster Projects, in addition to lecture series with photographers, designers, and filmmakers, where proceeds were donated to various charitable organizations.
