FORTHMADE is a one-day
pop-up store event featuring limited edition, hand-created product
created by CCAD artists and designers that will be held at the Easton
Town Center. We'll be open on May 4, 2013. Event
hours are 1 p.m. – 9 p.m.
In the fall of 2012, my Honors class created CCAD's first pop-up store, ONE. You can read about it, here. The success of ONE set in motion events that our ambitious seven-student class never anticipated. This included the creation of new curriculum, support and backing from CCAD, a relationship with the Easton Community Foundation, and FORTHMADE.
This year, my participation took a step in a more holistic direction as the Project and Business Manager for FORTHMADE. Though highly creative, one of my greatest strengths lies in organization and I wanted to reinforce my understanding of business operations and hone my business relationship skills.
A project of this scale makes it impossible to work on just one thing (thankfully). I've been able to do a little bit of everything, including lend my hands and advertising strategy skills to the branding and advertising team. Stepping away from the computer is so refreshing.
