Virtual DesignThinkers 2020 Conference

GDC is very pleased to be a partner of the RGD Virtual DesignThinkers 2020 conference. This partnership enables GDC members to attend the virtual conference at RGD member's rates.

November 9-20, 2020 

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.
