I just miss you all...what a pity! I'll stay for more 1 month in Vancouver and would like to know artists and designers - if possible, contacts me in this site. Thanks! ”

“ Next time I'll get there on time so I can get a bit more involved! Although great first impressions. I just wish Vancourerites would stop screaming how great they are IN Vancouver and push it more overseas because no one knows!! Seriously...no one I know back in London, Berlin, Paris etc knew sites like Flickr and Hoot Suite etc all started in Vancouver! Amazing! And the quality of design here is incredible, you can really specialise so the designers here seem to be able to do everything from traditional corporate design to web programming.... ”

“ Designers ought to pull themselves away from the glowing square occasionally to get some fresh air- and if it's to go hang out with other designers and talk about design, then they don't have to feel guilty about doing it. ”
— Ariel on Apr 12, 2011.
“ It's great to have a creative community where we can support each others and share ideas! ”
— Crystal on Mar 14, 2011.
“ Others should join this meetup group because it will bring you riches, popularity, and a feeling of overall glee and joy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to go home and spend the rest of your evening setting 8pt type by hand. The presence of good food along with the potential of a bar fight to break out over typographic differences makes this meetup group above and beyond any typical social outing. ”
— Megan on Feb 15, 2011.
“ You might want to join this group if you like creative people and work in the communication design field. If you're new to Vancouver or the industry, you'll find it a great place to network and socialize, but if you're passing out résumés or selling services, this might not be the best use of your energy. ”
— Mark B. on Dec 14, 2010.

“ If you're a student or practicing designer, it is a very relaxed way to network with likeminded people. We're unpretentious, laid back and are there for conversation, not just a handshake! I feel like I get to know people there, not just meet them. The regularity of the event helps to facilitate that. ”
— Erika R. on Jun 15, 2010.
