In this unprecedented session, leading designers from every region of Canada – all gathered to judge the new Design Edge Canada Regional Design Awards – will offer their unique perspectives on the role of Canadian designers in today’s globalized design economy. The event takes place in Toronto on Wednesday, March 10 at the Old Mill Inn from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Click here to register.
With each passing day, it seems borders mean less. Local clients can outsource design to faraway lands. Local designers can operate globally. Multinational corporations have to maintain global brands yet respect local markets. Where do Canadian designers fit into all of this? Where are the opportunities and what are the pitfalls?
Gain insight on business strategies for the Canadian design marketplace. Learn how designers are succeeding in this economy. Meet our esteemed panel of Regional Design Awards judges, flown in from cities across the country, and learn about the unique challenges they face in their regions. Our A-List panel includes: Jeff Harrison (Rethink), Zahra Al-Harazi (Foundry Creative), Chris Clarke (Spacecadet/Velocity), Kevin Hawley (Barefoot Creative), Mark Roberts (Davis), Claire Dawson (Underline Studio), Marie-Hélène Trottier (Bleublancrouge) and Matthew Allen (Revolve).
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about the challenges and successes of your colleagues from across Canada and participate in the Great Canadian Design Debate.
