The Design Conference is unlike any event you've ever been to. We discuss more than the future direction of design — but what design means in the hearts and minds of the worlds favourite creative leaders. By being open and vulnerable, we engineer an experience which is designed to leave you feeling moved, motivated and connected.

 
 
 

From critically acclaimed strategists to the worlds most outrageous commercial artists, The Design Conference is curated to not only entertain but more specifically to surprise. In one way or another, our Keynotes will leave you feeling confronted in the most beautiful way.
