Rebranding Strategies (Wednesday, October 20, 2021)
Working on a brand refresh or a complete rebrand for your company is an exciting opportunity, but there are many things to consider during the process. Have you done an audit of your current brand? Will this be a collaborative effort with an outside agency? Do you have an implementation plan? This webinar will look at the strategy and practical considerations behind going through a rebrand with your in-house design team.
Topics covered may include: research, brand audits, rebrand vs refresh, stakeholder buy-in, brand standards, and implementation plans.
 
Collaborating with External Talent (Wednesday, December 1, 2021)
Whether it’s high-end photography, custom illustration or compelling video, hiring external talent for a project is a great solution when that expertise isn’t available in-house. But do you understand how their process fits in with your own? This webinar looks at how to collaborate with these creative professionals for the best possible outcome.
Topics covered may include: creative briefs, storyboarding, budgets, project management and usage agreements.
 
Digital Asset Management: Implementation and Best Practices (Wednesday, January 12, 2022)
Having quick, easy access to your digital assets can significantly improve your workflow. In this webinar, in-house design professionals share their experience with DAM system implementation and use in their organizations.
Topics covered may include: implementing a DAM system, sharing assets with stakeholders, quality control, and innovative ways a DAM system can be used.
 
Making the Shift to Accessible Design Practices (Wednesday, February 9, 2022)
As legislation comes into effect and more companies are seeing the value of making their communications accessible to all, designers are having to navigate what that means for their in-house team and their processes. Through presentations from industry professionals, we will look at how design teams are making the necessary changes for digital accessibility.
Topics covered may include: accessibility audits, web accessibility, accessible documents, stakeholder buy-in and changing internal processes.
 
Retrospectives: Sharing Design and Experience (Wednesday, March 9, 2022)
Join us for presentations from three seasoned in-house designers as they share their favourite projects, biggest lessons learned and how they have worked with the same brand over many years. This webinar is an opportunity to see examples of great design work and the stories behind it.
Topics covered may include: evolving a brand over time, growing as a designer, collaboration, challenges and opportunities of working in-house and overcoming project limitations.
 
Design Management (Wednesday, April 20, 2022)
Whether you are an experienced manager or someone who is transitioning into a team lead role, managing a team can be both rewarding and challenging. This webinar is for those looking for advice, tips and best practices for design management and leading an in-house creative team.
Topics covered may include: career progression, measuring performance, demonstrating the value of design, implementing processes, working with internal stakeholders and fostering a creative and inclusive work environment.
 
Applicants may submit proposals for consideration to speak on in-house topics beyond the ones listed.
