Vancouver Film School (VFS) is pleased to announce that the 2nd annual Digital Design Conference (DDC) will be held from September 8 to 9. As with its inaugural year, the conference will be held online via Hopin, with free registration for all who are interested in attending.
The DDC is VFS’s initiative to bring the design, creative technology and visual communication communities together. The conference will gather a wide range of creative designers to share ideas and explore new initiatives and breakthroughs in interactive design, motion graphics, visual communication, UX/UI design, gaming, emerging technology, VR/AR, projection mapping and more.
 
This year’s Digital Design Conference is centered around the idea of how we EVOLVE as designers & artists. It is an opportunity for us to learn how the landscape is changing in the design community, from how we communicate, to collaborating with other specialized creatives, to the need to constantly grow as artists to remain 'outside of the box'.
 
This year, VFS boasts an incredible lineup. Highlights include:
 
A Motion Design panel on ‘winning a client’ led by Freelance Designers Bee Grandinetti, Sander van Dijk and Robert Hranitzky, along with Cabeza Patata Co-Directors Katie Menzies and Abel Reverter.
 
A discussion on ‘rethinking your online presence’ led by Justin Cone, Director of Communications Strategy at BUCK. 
 
And much more!
 
The 2020 conference welcomed a panel of prestigious guests, including Charla Pereira (Senior Designer II at Microsoft), Jorge. R. Canedo (Owner & Creative Director of Ordinary Folk), Simon Vieira & Stuart Amos (Co-Founder of Agency in the Wild), Paola Mariselli (Facebook’s Product Design Manager) and many more. The event was a great success and saw over 570 industry professionals come together over the three-day event to build & strengthen the design community.
