At the last Coroflot Creative Confab in San Francisco, Josh Couto, a student of the Acadamy of Art University, offered to shoot and edit the entire event in exchange for admission. In addition to capturing footage of the days proceedings, he and his colleague Drew Dorsey went so far as to conduct interviews with three of the panelists: Emily Delmont of Google Creative Lab, Kate Gilman of 24 Seven and John Foster of IDEO. It's a fantastic little production, touching on key issues of creative hiring: the importance of building up networks, the difficulty of determining fit, and the crucial need for designers to demonstrate collaborative ability and dedication.
Thanks again to Josh and Drew, and keep your eyes peeled for one more video of the full panel discussion.
