Presentation

Overview

You won’t find lying, cheating and deceiving others on any job description, but according to Hoss they are the most important skills for any digital creative.

How many job titles do you have? Your business card might have one title on it, but the reality is that you could put 5 or 6 titles on there. The job of designer, programmer, animator, information architect, artist, illustrator, cameraman, video editor, sound engineer and musician can often be found in one person’s occupation.

What it comes down to is that we are all liars. We create fictional narratives to sell products, promote brands and entertain viewers. Consumers know about reality, it’s our job to create the dream.

If you’re a digital creative who thinks your work is too commercial to benefit from a narrative full of lies, or you wished you had the credentials to call yourself an artist, then Hoss is going to make you think again.

You’ll leave this presentation ready to lie your way to the top.

Who this presentation is for:
Digital creatives struggling to work out what their job title should be.

What attendees will walk away with:

Sore sides and a reassurance that having ten job titles is normal.
