Ever wonder which is better: Agency Life or Freelance Freedom?

Come August 15 it’s on!

5 Rounds: Agency Vs Freelance

Featuring: Mike “The A.D.” McCoy – Vs. – Jonathan “I like my freedom” Wood

Join us as we go 5-Rounds on Agency Vs. Freelance as part of new National AIGA EMERGE initiative targeting emerging designers. Get your ringside seat for what is set to be a slugfest of opinions and a smackdown of one-upmanship between two titans of the industry. Plus, AIGA Wichita is ringing in the EMERGE Awareness Week with the inaugural EMERGE event. This is the Main Attraction on a National level.

If that's not enough, we’re introducing a new format where two guests go toe-to-toe on a topic with 5 rounds of questions and audience participation. Our two heavyweights will be sparring over who has it better. In the end, you’ll decide the winner and what is the winning approach for your career as we cover 5 topics in Agency Vs. Freelance:

Round 1: The Office
Round 2: The People
Round 3: The Work
Round 4: The Worst
Round 5: The Perks

Got a question for the duo? Here’s your chance to weigh in and tweet it to #EMERGEwichita. The referee will be sure provoke an answer during the event.

EMERGE offers tailored content for the emerging designer. Within EMERGE there are five tracks of interest: Employment, Growth, Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Life Skills. We will punch into each of these tracks as part of an ongoing EMERGE series.

Let’s get ready to rumble!
