Over its 20 year history, the DesignThinkers Conference has spanned massive changes in the communication design industry. From print to digital, visual identity to brand, websites to user experiences, design has evolved as new trend, technologies and philosophies transform the wider world. Join us at DesignThinkers Vancouver this May, put on by RGD in partnership with GDC, to explore the innovations and disruptions that inform, inspire and influence design, consider its impact and re-imagine its role as we confront fundamental global challenges.
