Five Rounds: Agency vs. Indie

Ever wonder what agency life is like? Or what it's like to be your own boss and make your own schedule as an independent? Five Rounds gives you a ringside seat as two experts go toe-to-toe with 5 rounds of questions covering everything from perks to working conditions to pet peeves.

We've got Trevor Villet, Executive Creative Director at ADG Creative (formerly Creative Director at Planit) on the Agency side and Alec Walker, owner of Stereoscope Studios representing Independents. We'll hit all the highlights and lowlights of working on your own/with a partner and in a good-sized agency environment. 

Round 1: The Office
Round 2: The People
Round 3: The Work
Round 4: The Worst
Round 5: The Perks

Five Rounds is a series of debates that is tailored to help you, students & emerging designers, discover the career path that's right for you. Join us at Rockwell Brewery for a fun evening of debate, disagreement, and double IPA.
