DesignThinkers, Canada’s only annual conference for visual communicators, is a must-attend for informed, forward-thinking creative communications and design professionals. At this inspiring two-day event that takes place in Toronto (in the Fall) and Vancouver (in the Spring), we offer in-depth analyses of trends and best practices in branding, design thinking, design management, communications technologies and user experience with a range of opportunities to exchange ideas with colleagues, new and old.



This Scholarship is sponsored by the City of Toronto Economic Development & Culture.
