Presented By: Penny W Stamps School of Art & Design

From Here to There: Brianna Despenza’s Creative Career
Moderated by artist and alumnus Stephanie Brown (MFA ‘18), From Here to There brings current Stamps students and Stamps alums together for honest and accessible conversations about the alumni’s creative career path.

Designed to help Stampers navigate their art and design careers, these talks will reveal the “nuts and bolts” of how Stamps alums worked to find a home in their creative career. With a different alumni featured bi-monthly, this live interview will be followed by a Q&A with students. BONUS: From Here to There participants will receive contact information for the alumni speaker, who will welcome follow-up questions via email and/or social media. From Here to There is a great way for students to start their professional networking journey — and get the critical information they need to design their present and their future for the real world. About the Speaker: Brianna Despenza, Associate Product Marketing Manager, Creative Strategist, Visual StorytellerIn 2018, I graduated with a dual-degree in Art & Design and Business-Marketing from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and am currently an Associate Product Marketing Manager on the Product Strategy Team at Whirlpool Corporation. In the last two years at Whirlpool Corporation I have worked on the Whirlpool brand team, supporting the launch of over 10 kitchen products, overseeing creative asset production by working closely with agency partners and in-house creative studios. In my current role on Product Strategy, I lead three product innovation workstreams, and a product launch team. I have a passion for storytelling and use this as a tool to help brands determine their “Why” and showcase that through their assets. I love to find the connections between art and marketing, and then bringing it to life through creative brand strategies. Working in Marketing means I am a constant advocate for the consumer and have a desire to tell the best story that truly resonates with the brand and consumers needs.Stamps events are free and open to the public, and we are committed to making them accessible to all attendees.
