What goes into designing and marketing an iconic hip-hop album? Join Janette Beckman, one of the photographers behind Hip-Hop RevolutionCey Adams, graphic designer and former Creative Director of Def Jam Recordings, and Bill Adler, author and Def Jam's founding Director of Publicity, for a conversation about the all-important relationship between sound, word, image, and design.  Janette, Cey, and Bill will sit down with moderator and artist Dave "Chino" Villorente to discuss their experiences behind the scenes of the record industry and their work shaping the brands of various major artists.  All three of them influenced the public face of such pioneering and internationally-recognized hip-hop acts as Salt-n-Pepa, Run DMC, and the Beastie Boys.
