Canada’s Largest Conference for Visual Communicators Returns
For the 18th year, leading design visionaries share their perspectives on the future of design and creative communications.
Over the past decade, graphic design has been transformed, possibly more than any other discipline or profession – from the ongoing, rapid advances in technology and how we communicate with one another to the widespread acceptance of design as a force for business and social change.
At DesignThinkers, over 2,000 industry professionals gather to explore how communication design is connecting people with ideas, brands, experiences and each other in new and innovative ways.
