Back in October, Workbook SVP Heidi Goverman hosted a panel with APA New York to ask Creatives: How can commercial artists stand out to creative buyers to get work seen, recognized and ultimately get hired in 2022?
In first part, Heidi talks website dos and don'ts with panelists Jason Gan (SAD, Droga 5) Jana Jarosz (CD, FCB Health), and Michael Kaminski (EP, Dir. of Production, JUICE Pharma Worldwide).
About the Panelists:
Jason Gan is a 2021 Adweek Creative 100. He started his career as an intern while still in school at space150, Mistress, WFT Creative and The Fantastical. After graduating he quickly moved into an Art Director role at Arnold Worldwide working with companies Progressive, Carnival, Avocados From Mexico, Santander Bank, National Association of Realtors.
Jason then moved to Goodby Silverstein & Partners working on Adobe, BMW, Doritos, Pepsi and HP before landing in his current role as Senior Art Director with Droga5.
Jana Jarosz is a hybrid creative thinker, maker, designer.
Whether working to shift the boundaries of inclusivity, diversity, and cultural standards to build a brand with a social impact point of view across all platforms or creating content by hand and by pixel, Jana's working process celebrates the agility of design thinking applied to ideas, a disciplined curiosity, and the joyful spirit of endless innovation—from the post-it with the big idea to the social posts.
After content creation hours, Jarosz spends her time sharing her creative expertise with students at CUNY’s City Tech, Manhattan’s only full-time night high school, and with creative-preneurs at the New Museum’s tech incubator, New Inc.
Michael Kaminski is the EP, Director of Production at JUICE Pharma Worldwide, and leads the agency's internal B12 Studio.
Well versed in creating content while making an impact, it's no surprise that you can find him mentoring students in the NYC SALT program or teaching photo & video workflow at SVA when he's not busy meeting client deadlines.
