In-house creatives are often expected to wear many hats beyond that of a designer. What skills are valued most and when should we consider training for new ones? How does this change the trajectory of our careers? This webinar looks at professional development through presentations from three in-house designers.
Kathleen is an award-winning designer with 15 years experience. For the past decade, she has been Creative Strategy Team Lead at Bruce Power where they deliver all things design, including a complete rebrand for the company in 2019. In 2017, they were honoured to be the design partner for RGD’s In-House Design Awards.
Learning from the best! presented by Meghan D’Mello
One of the struggles of being an in-house designer is that you're likely one of the only people who do what you do in the organization – but that also applies to many of your co-workers too. How can you turn that struggle into a benefit that also helps you learn and grow as a creative?
Kyle leads the design practice at Coactuate, a strategic consultancy focused on supporting healthcare leaders to navigate complex change. He has over a decade of editorial design experience and has made the transition from agency work to leading design in-house at strategic consultancies. As a Member of the RGD, Kyle acts as a mentor to junior designers, an awards judge and a portfolio reviewer.
