    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Dixie State University’s weekly “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” forum series continues this Tuesday, March 25, with a presentation by Steve Babcock of the Evolution Bureau (EVB) in Colorado. The forum will begin at 12 noon, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. Admission is free for all community members, DSU students, and faculty and staff.

    Babcock serves as executive creative director at EVB, which is a full service creative agency that specializes in digital and social media. Prior to his time at EVB, he was a vice president and executive creative director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky (CP+B) in Boulder, Colo., where he worked for six years. Babcock worked on accounts including Volkswagen, Geek Squad and Amex OPEN, and managed Domino’s Pizza, Guitar Hero, Best Buy and Applebee’s, among other accounts. Babcock has won several industry awards for his team’s creative campaign that helped Domino's Pizza turn its reputation around, including a 2009 Cannes Integrated Lion for “You Got 30 Minutes,” and a slew of Pencils, Lions and Clios for the “Domino's Pizza Tracker.”

    The Dixie Forum is a lecture series designed to introduce DSU students, faculty, and the St. George community to diverse ideas and personalities and to widen their world views. Forum lectures are free and open to the general public for participation. Dixie students can earn one college credit by signing up for HUM 1000, attending lectures regularly, carefully considering the ideas expressed, and writing about the presentations.

    The weekly Dixie Forum series will continue its 2014 Spring Semester slate on Tuesday, April 1, featuring presentations by several DSU students as part of the annual Dixie State Research Day.
