No Man's Land: A Conversation with Some of Atlanta's Most Creative Babes

  • WeWork Colony Square 1175 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30361 United States (map)

Join us and the  Dream Warriors Foundation during this intimate conversation with panelists Whitney Bolster (Ampersand), Rachelle Knowles (Cultivate Union), Tiffany LaTrice (TILA Studios), and Jinah Kim (Matchstic) about cultivating creativity and channeling that energy into their work. We'll discuss how creativity is defined in their work, how being a woman has motivated their brand and voice, their tried and true systems to get sh*t done as creative women and more.

 Jinah writes copy for  Matchstic  and their clients, putting her skills to use on the web, in print and occasionally writ large on the side of a building. With a love for creativity and craft, she translates message into meaning, across industries and state lines. Her experience in advertising, e-commerce and marketing come in handy as she shifts between writing for various client personalities. In her time at Matchstic, she's written witty food service packaging, intriguing podcast adverts, punchy taglines and enterprise-level websites in addition to distilled brand-defining copy.  In snippets of free time, she manages a budding e-commerce business, picks up new hobbies by the dozen and combs through the web to seek out independently crafted wares.
