Fire up that laptop and join AAF Memphis from home for a lunchtime Zoom chat with illustrator and designer Rachel Briggs and Wiseacre Brewing Co. cofounder Kellan Bartosch.
You may recognize Rachel's work every time you grab a cold Tiny Bomb, but that's just a pint of the keg that is her incredible portfolio - we're talking album art, badass murals, set designs, show posters, and so much more. In this virtual Q&A we'll tap into the story behind Rachel's iconic Wiseacre Brewing can illustrations, the creation of Wiseacre's dreamy new downtown space, and how creativity and business can make a potent and profitable brew.
We will also be inducting our 2020 - 2021 board during this luncheon as well.
Buckle up creatives, this is one lunch break you don't want to miss!
