Design Innovations Series: Stealing from Start-ups–Marketing Strategy Workshop

How does a traditional design studio use Silicon Valley ideas like growth hacking and lean development to make posters for art exhibitions? What is Product/Market Fit and how does an art school teacher use it to plan assignments?

Stealing from Start-Ups is a one-night crash course in understanding the principles behind Silicon Valley buzzwords like growth hacking and minimum viable products and the ramifications they have for creative entrepreneurs who choose to apply them. This isn’t a class in best practices for social media; it’s an introduction to an entirely new way of marketing—one that is defined by its emphasis on low budgets, measurable goals, and fast execution. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies.

What to bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook.
