Peter began his career in communications at MKG Productions, a strategic branding and experiential marketing company based in New York City. Two years later (and a brief stopover in the world of Fashion PR) Peter realized his interest was in brand marketing, but from the brand side, rather than an agency. He became the Brand Development Manager at GQ Magazine, and for four years he helped create and produce marketing programs that brought the GQ experience to life for readers and advertisers alike, across all platforms. At the end of 2013 he left GQ to join The New York Times to work in advertising sales as the Director of Luxury for integrated sales (newsprint, T Style Magazine, NYTimes.com).
Mama’s Sauce & French Paper Co. are teaming up to bring paper and printing process to life for your design community. This event will have Brian French, 6th generation French family, and Nick Sambrato, Founder of Mama’s Sauce, tell tales of their production processes, the history of their companies, and then share the stage in a 3-part panel with Baton Rouge designer Brad Jensen to answer questions on how the three elements, design, paper, & print, meet to make art. Attendees will receive a free commemorative poster (while supplies last) and an opportunity to letterpress their own certificate of attendance.
