Follow the Breadcrumbs: The Journey From Student to Professional Designer

San Diego

Sat, Apr 30, 12:00 AM (UTC)


About this event

Join us for an in-person (and live streamed) event where our panelists discuss their journeys from students to professionals. Hosted at San Diego State University, the panelists will discuss how they got their first job, what changed as they progressed through their early career, and what they wish they knew then that they now know.

A broad cross-section of designers to share their journey (with a dash of Figma thrown in for good measure, to be sure). Limited snacks will be provided by SDSU School of Art and Design (thanks!) and there will be networking after the panel.


Moderated by Megan Landry, Lead Product Designer at Experian
