The second week of RGD's annual DesignThinkers Conference showed us the path forward; designing with passion, purpose and positivity.
Here are some takeaways from presentations and discussions over our second week. Check out more on social media using the hashtag #rgdDT.
"A lot of your success as a freelancer comes from people being invested in you as a person."
— Jessica Hische, Lettering Artist & Author
"Part of being an artist (designers are artists) is having a particular point of view and sharing that point of view through your work."
— Lisa Congdon, Fine Artist, Illustrator & Writer
"I became truly inspired by the ways in which designers around the world have taken my fonts and made them a part of the Black Lives Matter and other movements."
— Tré Seals, Founder, Vocal Type
"There's no guarantee that the websites, news organizations, publications or social media platforms that we currently know will exist into the future, let alone preserve the massive amounts of content created for them."
— Maurice Cherry, Principal and Creative Director, Lunch
