      About the Meeting Topic: Everyone regardless of their specific field of expertise has the capacity to be creative. Everyone has been creative at one point or another. But often pursuing creativity means dealing with an uncomfortable feeling of intimidation and fear. Being creative literally means thinking at a higher level and that is hard to sustain or accomplish when fear sets in. This talk is about encouraging creative moments, exploring inspiration and developing a strategy of creative curiosity that embraces the fear associated with it and allows you to unlock creativity and discover a new realm of creative thinking so you can make creativity more sustainable.



      Von Glitschka has created award-winning illustrative design for over 27 years through his multi-disciplinary boutique design firm Glitschka Studios, located here in the Pacific Northwest. Von’s diverse range of illustrative design has been used by some of the most respected global brands, including Adobe, HGTV, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Major League Baseball, Microsoft, Pepsi, Disney, and Ogilvy & Mather. He creatively collaborates with ad agencies, design firms, in-house corporate art departments, and small businesses from around the world. Von develops skill-based design courses at Lynda.com, and is the author of several books, including Vector Basic Training: A Systematic Creative Process for Building Precision Vector Artwork and Take and Make Art: Hundreds of Royalty-Free Vector Illustrations for Discriminating Designers.


      Von’s mix of humor, inspiration, great design, and solid, creative methodology make him a sought-after speaker on the topics of design and creativity, brand identity, and marketing at conferences such as the HOW Design Conference, AIGA: the professional association for design, SXSW Interactive, Adobe MAX, CreativePro: The Conference for Photoshop and Illustrator Users, and others.
