USPTO’s Outreach Program for Graphic Designers
Wednesday March 27th
2:00pm-3:00 pm

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is looking to partner with colleges and universities that offer programs in graphic design, in order to present informational lectures on trademarks and copyrights. Graphic designers will learn the fundamentals of both trademarks and copyrights and the potential pitfalls of infringement. This program highlights how success as a graphic designer has as much to do with legal and ethical considerations as it does about being creative.

Where: Stamps Common Room 2440
