DesignThinkers is Canada's largest annual graphic design conference, connecting designers from around the world. For the first time in the conference’s 20-year history, the RGD is hosting the event online over two weeks with additional lead-up programming. This new format means more: more accessibility, more learning, more voices, more intentional connection.


Registration grants access to live, recorded and interactive programming; recordings of all sessions for 3 months after the event; access to a Slack Workspace with other event participants, speakers and panelists and a digital goodie bag.

Join the RGD at DesignThinkers Virtual this November to discuss the trends and work that are shaping the design industry.
