Milwaukee, Wis. - In the rapidly evolving world of advertising, marketing and graphic design, it's more important than ever to have a multi-disciplinary approach to professional development. Print, web and mobile are all languages industry professionals in these industries need to speak, and Kevin Stohlmeyer is passionate about leading designers in this direction.
Stohlmeyer has been selected to speak at the Designer/Developer Workflow (D2W). This second annual event, held July 14-16, 2011, in Kansas City, Missouri, brings web and print designers together with web developers to share best practices in project collaboration and workflow process improvement. According to Stohlmeyer, "It's a challenge to work on projects that involve multiple media with just one facet of the team, everyone has relevant contributions to creating great work, and we're trying to make it easier to get there."
"Kevin's 15-year background in design and publishing makes him an ideal speaker at this unique three-day conference, which pushes professionals to expand their skill set, relationships, and knowledge base to better serve their clients," said Erica Conway, C2's co-owner and director of sales and marketing. "Presenters help bridge gaps and offer innovative approaches to enter new territory with confidence and resources." Kevin's D2W session, "Adobe Photoshop Workflow," is scheduled 3:45 p.m. to 4:35 p.m. on July 16.
As an Adobe Community Professional (ACP) and graduate from Madison Area Technical College, Stohlmeyer has been with C2 for four years. He's a member of MATC's Milwaukee School of Media Arts Advisory Board, ITT Technical College Advisory Committee, and Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) Graphics Advisory Committee. He co-manages the Milwaukee Adobe Users Group and Milwaukee Graphic Design Meetup Group. He's also been recognized by various trade magazines and made appearances at Adobe summits and webinars. He lives in West Allis, Wis.
Expected number of D2W attendees is between 200-250, which includes designers, developers and the hybrid professionals who do both, along with project managers. It's a venue to meet like-minded creators, and forge new connections. More information may be found on
