Paging teens, 20somethings and those young at heart. As the fifth in a series of design talks at the Somerville (MA) Public Library, I am psyched to announce the next speaker - streetwear impresario Johnny Earle aka Johnny Cupcakes. On May 10th he will be telling his career story; focusing on the importance of branding, starting the business (both web based and retail) with little-to-no start up money, entrepreneurship, small business management, product development, marketing and communication, and graphic design. Pop-up shop and social hour to follow.
Huge thanks to the Johnny Cupcakes team for making this happen - he is a busy guy and any young business person (even beyond the apparel realm) would be well served by attending this event. 4pm. After-school special!
Please note: This event is free but seating is strictly limited to 60 attendees - secure your spot by picking up a ticket in advance from the circulation desk at the Somerville (Central) Library, 79 Highland Ave. Bus 88 or 90 from Davis Square or walk over after your brunch at Highland Kitchen... or up from Union Square for the Indo' fans. And these ain't no ordinary tickets... We were very lucky to work with Eli Epstein of Union Press who created these fantastic letterpressed, numbered cards as a ticket and takeaway.
