DesignThinkers 2020 website is now live!
RGD launched the DesignThinkers 2020 website designed and developed in collaboration with john st. and Array of Stars.


The theme for the 21st year of DesignThinkers, conceptualized and designed by john st., is Sound On.


Great design should be seen and heard. That’s why at DesignThinkers 2020, we want to celebrate not just amazing design, but also the diverse voices behind the work. The event will feature some of the world’s best designers, each with unique perspectives and powerful stories to share. 


We asked Cole Sullivan, Founding Partner, Creative, Array of Stars, about becoming our Web Partner for DesignThinkers 2020. “With RGD attracting top design thinkers from around the world and Array of Stars being a leading digital design firms, we couldn’t pass up on an opportunity to partner with RGD & john st. in support of the broader design community. The concept is about celebrating the voices of the speakers, emphasizing their individuality through varied typography and colour — The creative team over here was happy to bring this experience to life.”


This is what Nicola Hamilton, Vice President of Communications at RGD, had to say about the website launch and our DesignThinkers 2020 partners. "The early launch of the website sets us on a great path for DesignThinkers 2020. We are incredibly grateful to our Design Partner, john st., for this year’s branding, and our Web Partner, Array of Stars, for the website. We look forward to working with them, and all of our DesignThinkers 2020 VAN and TO Partners to continue the tradition of delivering an amazing experience for our attendees.”
