DesignThinkers is a must-attend for forward-thinking communications and design professionals. RGD's Conference offers in-depth analyses of trends and best practices in branding, design thinking, design management, communications technologies and user experience. Attendees leave with a reconsidered and refined design or creative process, feeling inspired, refreshed and connected to the creative communications community.
Conference registration includes two days of speakers, a creative marketplace, roundtable discussions, portfolio reviews, food and drink at our Delegate Party, studio tours and a multitude of opportunities to network with top design professionals.
This year’s theme, Speak the Truth, is designed to spark honest presentations and meaningful conversations.
