In Conversation with Carson Ting

I’m very honoured and excited to be invited to the Advertising Design Club of Canada’s ‘In Conversation’ virtual event.

This club has inspired me since the very early days of art school at OCAD. I still remember how I used to volunteer at the club as an art student by handing out the design annuals and swag bags to all the attendees during the awards ceremony hosted at the Royal Ontario Museum. I would try to identify all the advertising superstars that walked through the doors to make sure I got a chance to introduce myself and maybe even get a business card or two.

That was well over 2 decades ago and the club has never stopped inspiring me.

Join me for this free event online on Wednesday, March 2nd, 9am PST / 12pm EST. The legendary Andrew Simon, Global Creative Lead, CCO Canada at Edelman will be hosting the event.

Event details:

How do you go from being an award-winning Art Director to a widely celebrated artist, muralist and animator? Damned if we know. Good thing our next guest on the monthly Zoom series ‘In Conversation With’ is the talented Carson Ting, Co-Founder of Chairman Ting Industries Inc. Please join ADCC Chair Andrew Simon as he chats with Carson about his inspiring career journey and so much more. See you Wednesday, March 2nd from 12-1 EST (that’s 9-10 West Coast time).

12 – 12:45pm – Conversation with Carson

12:45 – 1pm – Audience Q&A

This event will be held using Zoom. Attendees will receive a link to the Zoom meeting the morning of March 2nd.

Fun fact: Jordan Doucette used to be my very first partner when I first entered the business. We were a creative team at an agency called ACLC back in 1999! They no longer exist. We used to work on accounts like Honda, Acura, Swiss Chalet, Harvey’s and more.
