Giving Back With Design
April 17, 2012
Since 1981, Michael Osborne Design has undertaken hundreds of pro-bono design projects for nonprofit groups, working on them between regular client work. A Sappi “Ideas That Matter” grant in 2008 spawned the project closest to Osborne’s heart – Joey’s Corner, a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Through the lens of Joey’s Corner, Michael Osborne will share printed examples of the design work he’s donated, how he finds the time to give back and why he thinks it’s so important.

February 14, 2012
If you’re winging it–and even if you aren’t–you can learn how to avoid subjective and unproductive rationales about one particular color or combination of colors during “The Tactics of Color Strategy” webinar.
During this webinar, guest speaker Jack Bredenfoerder reveals his five key components for creating a successful color strategy.
And if you’ve set your sights on being a color leader rather than a color follower, Bredenfoerder explains how to create a color forecast that looks beyond the current market trends.
