"Many thanks to Studio Millie—they have an energetic, fresh body of work that is a perfect match for this RGD event. We can’t wait to see what they come up with to capture the attention of emerging designers and infuse the virtual event with some serious vibes," says Julian Brown RGD, VP and Chair of the RGD Communications Committee


This is what Caitlin Wharton RGD, Founder and Creative Director at Studio Millie and our new Member had to say about the collaboration. "We are wildly excited to be partnering with the RGD this year for Creative Directions 2021. We’re a team of designers, writers and thinkers that have all had many directions in our own careers that have led us all to the sparkling world of design. We can’t wait to share our experiences with you through the design & buildout of the branding and artwork for the conference. We’ll see you there!"
