Join Smartpress and AIGA Minnesota for an unforgettable road trip through the lens of lifestyle photographer, Jonathan Chapman, and the design vision of Eight Hour Day co-founder, Nathan Strandberg.

The two fellow road warriors will share one of their favorite collaborations, a unique promotional mailer created with travel photography taken from Jonathan’s family sabbatical, a four-month adventure with his wife and kids that included stops in New Zealand, Thailand, Japan, and Europe.

Known for their keen eye and storytelling talent, both Jonathan and Nate share a love for the camera that is on full display in this stunning pictorial that documents the Chapman family’s break in their regularly scheduled program of work and life to take what Jonathan calls “the less obvious fork in the road.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about how stepping out of your comfort zone can step up your business game. Join us for the evening and post-interview Q&A moderated by Brent Stickels of YYES. Beer, wine, and snacks will be served.
