This class is open to current SPD Professional Members only; you can join or renew your membership along with registration if you need to. The day-long class begins at 8:30 and runs through 4PM. Breakfast and lunch are included.

The Master Class is an exclusive workshop providing inspiration, education, hands-on skills to SPD members through intimate access to well-respected, award-ridden, top-dog design professionals. After this 1-day intensive workshop, you'll have a new mentor, a deeper professional network, and a broader skill-set to take to work on Monday morning.

Mentors lead each 1-day workshop offering critical analysis of one of their areas of expertise, using samples of their own work as "case study" examples to provide insight into the editorial process and to highlight the key factors that shape their body of work. Each workshop will include conversations about and experiences with the brainstorming process, how to collaborate with editors, keys to proactive leadership, dealing with deadlines, working within and around your budget, great research techniques, and more. The seminar day is centered around in-class exercises, offering participants the opportunity to learn from an intimate community of colleagues and under the supervision and influence of a great mentor.
