The RGD’s Annual Conference for In-House Creatives returns virtually this June!
TORONTO, CANADA, May 18, 2021 — The Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) In-House Design Conference taking place from June 7 to 11 has much to offer to creatives acting as in-house design department of one or are part of a design team that spans multiple offices around the world.
In-house design teams have had to rapidly adapt to new routines, methods and projects to best serve their organizations. Based on the theme of balance and harmony, this year’s conference explores the skills, tools and knowledge needed to advocate for a team’s value, optimize internal design processes and produce work that stands out.
The program features keynotes by Greg Hoffman, former NIKE Chief Marketing Officer; Rich Tu, VP of Digital Design at MTV Entertainment Group at ViacomCBS; Kristin Skinner, Design Leader and Author and Natalie Brewster, Director of Global Creative Operations at The Body Shop. Presentation topics include Getting Clients Addicted to Good Design; How to Decipher and Create Inclusive Design; We Don’t Just Make Pretty Things: Building Strategic In-House Creative Teams and From Behind the Screen to the Front of the Boardroom: Leading as an Introvert.
In addition to the panels & presentations, delegates have an opportunity to network with fellow in-house designers in real-time and join intimate, themed roundtable discussions on June 7, 9 & 11 covering topics ranging from “Using digital asset management tools” to "Managing projects and timelines” to “Communicating value as an in-house team" to “Diversity and inclusion in our designs and in our workplaces”.
Delegates are invited to purchase a Day Pass for June 8 or 10 or an All-Access Pass for a complete conference experience.
