Creative services consultant Maria Piscopo broke down everything from networking to time management for designers at the Y Conference. Most of her tips can be accessed through her super handy website, but she did say something that struck us. Joining a professional association used to be optional, she said, but now it’s no longer an option. Getting involved with a group of your peers is absolutely imperative, especially if you’re making a career transition.

Piscopo is also always looking for creatives to feature in her many columns and articles in design mags. Be sure to send all your company news to her and get yourself some ink.
