About this event

Before 2020, we were hopeful of the future, however, we have been shocked by COVID-19 and many of us have to work remotely to curb the spread of the virus. During this dreadful time, many have gone through a lot of pain and at the same time, many of us adapt and change. Join us in this Christmas special live event to hear how design leaders from companies of all sizes react to this change and design during this uncertain time and the vision moving forward as designers.
