Join Creative Director Neal Schuler as he reviews the Woodcraft catalog!
Neal Schuler led the award-winning creative team at Harry and David. He is now the VP of Creative at J. Schmid. This critique starts off with a review of the five things that really impact catalog creative. Then Neal dives into the catalog review. It’s a great learning experience to look over the shoulder of an expert while they work. Catalog critiques are always popular here at Catalog University for just that reason.
