DesignThinkers is a must for anyone in the communications and design field. This two-day event will cover a variety of topics including user experience, design management, communications technologies and more. DesignThinkers covers these topics through keynote speakers, book signings and panel discussions. Themes often visited are strategy, inspiration, trends and interactions.
This year’s event features over 40 speakers including Michael Bierut, Partner at Pentagram New York, Diti Katona, CCO and founding partner of Concrete, Mauricio Alarcon, founder and ECD of Brooklyn-based agency Conquistadors and Julian Brown, designer and entrepreneur behind the motion design studio ON THE CHASE! Also featured is the world-renowned Michael Beirut.
For the first time this year, RGD has selected an official charity for the event, the North York Women’s Shelter. DesignThinkers has a proposed goal of $20,000, to give to the charity and help them build a new state-of-the-art shelter.
DesignThinkers 2018 T0 takes place at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.
