DESCRIPTION

This slide presentation explains how when professors give students examples of industry leaders who possess amazing work ethic, drive, determination, craftsmanship, and skill along with hard work, the student can achieve great things. I focused on designers and hand lettering artists who have practiced and achieved goals faster than others. These designers serve as an inspiration to students and act as a role model of behavior to emulate.
