Self-Love
Adam J. Kurtz & Eric Hu

How authenticity and creativity can inspire personal and professional growth.

So often our design discourse centers around how we arrived at the perfect solution for a brand or client. Less frequent are the conversations where we turn that focus on ourselves, sharing openly the challenges encountered on the path to self-actualization.

Our “Self-Love” event is back for a second round, this time to tackle how authenticity and creativity (and perhaps a little darkness) can lead to a stronger sense of self and more fulfilling career. Eric Hu and Adam J. Kurtz will speak to how they’ve made peace with the light and the dark, building distinct career paths where they can be their best selves.

Event Series: Work in Progress
Self-Love: Adam J. Kurtz & Eric Hu is part of the Work in Progress event series. These events are focused on the creative process, personal development and professional development. They aim to give a peek behind the curtain and expose failure as a valuable experience.
