What Lies Beneath?

Girvin's signature

Tim Girvin's signature.

Who are you and what’s your story? On Sept. 16, more than 50 alumni from Evergreen and Seattle's Antioch University gathered in Seattle, exploring ways to tell their own personal stories with guidance from international brand strategist and design expert Tim Girvin ’75 and filmmaker Rajaa Gharbi ’93. “What do you stand for?” Girvin asked. “Every brand is made by a human, so brands can be human. Your brand can have warmth, be memorable and compelling.” Creating a brand for yourself is linked to the fire within, with passion, commitment, focus and aligning intention with attention. Something as simple as your signature, like Tim Girvin’s to the right, can make a unique impression. Alumni were able to tell their stories and listen to how Girvin and Gharbi told theirs, offering ideas and inspirations about how alumni can market themselves in their local communities.

Think winter.

Think cold days spent indoors;
think families gathering, giving, getting;
think frosty windows, dozing cats,
warm hearths.
