The DesignMeets are mixers that focus on interdisciplinary collaboration between local designers… But the real value comes from the conversations that filter through the events and make their way into the world afterwards.
Events involve local speakers who share their perspectives on a theme. The format of each event varies upon the theme and the venue, and audience participation is key to establishing the community connection.
Our mission is to strengthen the value of design by facilitating conversations between Canadian critical-design-thinkers and non-design-organizations.
DesignMeets are Free!
We rely on generous sponsors and hosts to help organize the events. If you are interested in co-hosting an event with us or if you’d like to sponsor the next DesignMeets in your area drop us a line.

We are a Canadian design firm located in Toronto. We help organizations navigate through complex choices using our informed design process.
One of our overarching principles (http://www.pivotdesigngroup.com/about/principles.html) is that we should bring joy through meaningful design. DesignMeets is an outlet of this very idea. We believe that collaborating with others is part of what makes design what it is. Even the act of having a conversation opens you up to hearing new points of view.
So, with DesignMeets, we hope to meet other designers with varied perspectives in order to exchange ideas through dialogue and strengthen the overall Canadian design perspective.
