Speaker – Josh Baker on the Creative Process

Due to a logistics issue, our original speaker, Anthony Maddaloni, will not be able to make it to our June 6 meeting. (We’ll reschedule Anthony for a later date)

So instead, club founder Josh Baker will be judging this week’s competition, and will be talking to us about one of his favorite topics – the Creative Process.   The discussion will start with the question ‘How Do you Create?”, and will go on to explore how you define your vision, and from that,  jump starting your creative process with new ways of thinking and now tools.  It ought to be a fun and engaging discussion!

Josh is a founder of NAPfS, and is co-owner of Azul Ox Visuals.  See his work at
