Let's talk about the hottest topics in design now! This meetup will bring likeminded people together every first Wednesday of the month. At the meetup 2 to 3 design practitioners will give concise talks on the latest design trends to get your mind pumped and thinking about the cutting edge of what's happening now.
In short, how this meetup started was trying to find a generalized design meetup in Helsinki that could spar to think on other disciplines of design besides web design. For the curious mind, this is a place to embrace the unexpected from graphic design trends of 2019, illustration methods in design to designing in relation to AI. So let’s be curious and let the child in us out.
This page is still being updated, so don't worry and keep checking in. If you have any questions feel free to message me and I'll get back to you.
Help: Still on the lookout for a venue :)
Illustration is a wide arena, which stretches across national borders and multitudes of media, so identifying trends accurately is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
But, I think we found them, three amazing speakers who are on top of their fields and talking about Illustration for brands & and how to publish them in the digital era.
