Future of Design is Open

Embracing Fuck Ups
Dave Senior, Partner, Playground INc.
Instagram might have been built in Toronto, had a few things worked out differently for Dave. In this 10 minute talk, Dave shares the exciting story of how he almost created the photo sharing platform, just before Instagram came into existence and how that project lead him to joining Playground!
The Hiring Mismatch
Maria Pereda, Director of Product Design, Roadmunk
Recruitment is a two-way street. Quite often, the most seasoned designers miss out on opportunities because they don’t consider a recruiter’s hiring experience as much as the case studies in their portfolio. Maria shares key gaps and lessons from her experience on both sides.
The Value of Learning
Matt Rae, Senior Product Designer, Zenreach
It’s foolish to think that learning stops when you’re finished school. In fact, having an ability to continually learn can be a difference maker in career progression. In this talk, Matt will share his experiences learning across several industries, and how his learning got him to where he is today.
We’re excited to hold our holiday event with our friends at the Infotech Research Group at their amazing venue – Concert Hall on 888 Yonge Street, located just north of Yonge & Bloor St.
