Members Invited to “Bring a Client” to DesignThinkers 2015

Client passes for RGD and Provisional RGD's registered for this year's DesignThinkers Conference are now available!


"The 'Bring a Client to DesignThinkers' initiative is a great way to impress upon your client the value of design and the value that you, as a designer, can bring to the table," says Wendy Millard RGD, Chair of RGD's PR Committee. "It's a unique way to invite them into our world, wow them with amazing speakers and kick-start a conversation about how design can impact the success of their business.”
