RGD Webcast: Future By Design: The Next Designer

Future By Design: The Next Designer - Sault Ste. Marie
September 18, 2012

6:30 - 8:30 PM
Sault College, Room M1030
Sault Ste. Marie, ON

RGD Ontario, in collaboration with the Gladstone Hotel, presents The Next Designer a panel discussion on the characteristics that will define the graphic designer of the future.

Graphic design is changing. Even its name is in dispute. New technologies, new media and a continuously evolving audience are all transforming the discipline of the design of communications in new and interesting ways. Join our expert panelists as we discuss the changing roles, skills and knowledge required of graphic designers, and where the opportunities and challenges of the profession will present themselves.

In addition to the discussion, each panelist will present a brief case study with visuals that highlights these new changes and challenges and demonstrates how designers are rising to meet them.
Join us for a special screening of this discussion as it is broadcast LIVE.


The Next Designer is the fourth in RGD’s ongoing Future by Design series of panel discussions. These panels are broadcast live via webcast to reach across all parts of the province. Contact programs@rgdontario.com to find out how to participate.
