Idiosyncrasy
challenge the way you think of yourself
Idiosyncrasy is a mode of behavior or way of thought peculiar to an individual. This conference opens a discussion of how identity is formed and how you can challenge yourself to look deeper into your own
personality.

Humanity/Human (?)
catch a glimpse of yourself
Humanity is a conference that encourages discussion and openmindedness about self-identity. As society changes, it’s important to discuss the charac-teristics that make us who we are, and how we can
better understand others who are different than ourselves.

Defined
the puzzle of personality
What makes you, you? Psychologists like to talk about our traits, or defined characteristics that make us who we are. Speakers in this conference discuss moments when we transcend those traits—
sometimes because our culture demands it of us, and sometimes because we demand it of ourselves.

Converge
Disciplinarities and Digital Scholarship

Converge encourages design educators, design researchers, and designers to take advantage of opportunities in digital scholarship, learn how to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects, and find new intersections within their existing research trajectories. To redefine what it means to be a designer and a design researcher today, we ask: How can design converge with digital scholarship in more than a superficial way? How might aspects of digital scholarship impact design research? What are the key questions at the intersection of design and the humanities?

RGD DesignThinkers 2015 Conference
Converge. Inspire. Transform.

RGD DesignThinkers, Canada's largest annual conference for the communication design industry, is a two-day event where International and Canadian creative visual communicators converge in downtown Toronto. Registrants have the opportunity to attend high-profile speaker presentations, panel discussions, network with colleagues, attend workshops and participate in a variety of other programs related to the design industry.

"Converge. Inspire. Transform” became the tagline for the event. “Converge", because of people coming together physically at one location with unity of purpose. “Inspire", because of the exchange of new ideas and ways of thinking. And lastly, “transform” because of emotional or intellectual change after attending the conference. Visually, we wanted the branding to encapsulate the digital feel of data but in contrast to something tactile and hand-crafted. To this end we executed the visuals by moving between making things by hand and finishing them off in the computer or by generating assets off the computer and finishing them by hand.
*Converge and Transform gives you visual cues on the visual direction of the conference. If you use the word inspire then you better make something that looks inspired!

Nuts + Bolts
Tightening up classroom fundamentals, reinforcing careers, and constructing the future of the discipline
Nuts + Bolts, a national AIGA Design Education conference for emerging and established design educators, administrators, students, and designers to strip away the mystique of academia and help build a solid foundational knowledge of discipline specific teaching methods.
