About the Project

Hindsight: What We Learn When We Look Back

Hindsight is an ongoing and curated collection of career wisdom provided by experienced professionals across creative fields, with an emphasis on advertising, design, media, public relations, publishing and production. For folks entering the industries, seeking to move up, or starting their own business, these stories are wisdom and advice not available anywhere else. The material includes what we wish we had known about a job, managing career choices, navigating organizations, hiring and working with other people, as well as memories of mentors who indelibly shaped the people we’ve all become.

Hindsight Career Project was founded by creative director Mat Zucker, video content and experience producer Andrea Leminske and director David Gaddie of The Colony.
