About this presentation

What's the value of your creative voice? A lot, according to designer James Victore. Using some of his own creative challenges as examples, Victore argues that it is only through finding your voice, your fears, and
your passion -- and expressing them -- that you can make great work.

About James Victore

James Victore runs an independent design studio hell-bent on world domination. He is an author, designer, filmmaker and firestarter. He continually strives to make work that is sexy, strong and memorable; work that toes the line between the sacred and the profane. His paintings of expressionist designs can be seen on ceramics, surfboards, billboards and supermodels.

Recently described as "part Darth Vader, part Yoda," Victore is widely known for his timely wisdom and impassioned views about design and its place in the world. He expresses these views and teachings through his numerous lectures, workshops, and writings.

James' work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is represented in the permanent collections of museums around the globe. His clients include Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Esquire Magazine, Moet Chandon and The New York Times. His work was recently published in a monograph titled, Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss? Victore teaches at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. He lives, loves, and works in Brooklyn.
