Designers, illustrators and small business owners, it’s almost time for this year’s WMC: Off-The-Grid, the three-day, all-inclusive design retreat Go Media created just for YOU! The retreat runs October 5 – 7th at Mohican State Park in Loudonville, Ohio. This sits happily between Cleveland and Columbus and is the perfect setting for us to unplug and focus in on our craft.
But before we get there, we have a few surprises up our sleeve. Today, we are beyond thrilled to tell you that Brad Woodard, Designer, Illustrator and Co-Founder (along with his wife, Krystal) of Brave the Woods, will be speaking and presenting a workshop at this year’s WMC: Off-The-Grid.
Growing up in a creative family, Brad always knew he was going to be an artist. When he “grew up” he continued his love of art through a creative career that ranged from a start up creative studio, to a large ad agency, and finally to starting his own design and illustration studio, Brave the Woods, with his wife. He pursues his creative career on the belief that you have to stay curious and you can’t wait on others to hand you your dream job, a message he shares in his talks, classes and workshops around the country. His curiosity fuels the variety of styles and projects he has worked on from children’s books, to murals, to animations and branding. When not working, he enjoys spending time traveling and enjoying the great outdoors with his wife and kids.
Brad will be making the trek to Mohican to facilitate one of our campfire talks, as well as teach an intimate workshop entitled, “Carvin’ Critters” that will be open to 18 lucky attendees. The workshop attendees will be forced to ditch the vectors and pixels and carve their favorite animal into a piece of wood. Attendees, sign up here.
