YOUR DESIGN LIFE IN 2020

Reflect & Envision

As 2019 comes to an end, hear from Toronto’s much celebrated creative leads on spearheading your career growth in 2020, interviewing and hiring the right way and embracing all the fuck ups that might show up along the way!

Future of Design is Open

Aayla Anderson & Andrea Burton, DESIGN Advocates, Abstract

A candid conversation on open design, operations & processes, transparency, and the shifting landscape of design.

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.
