For emerging and experienced designers alike, success in design can be a balancing act between productivity and creativity. How do you know when your work is finished? Is it ever finished? Who are you designing for? When will you be happy with it? For Sydney Design Festival 2019, a cross-disciplinary panel of Sydney’s leading creatives discuss these teasing question.

Coming from various design backgrounds, our speakers will discuss their design processes, challenges and triumphs in an effort to share their experiences and learnings. It will be a night of insight and introspection for creatives, clients and design enthusiasts alike.

A Q&A will be held after the talks for further discussion.

If you’re a creative…

Creating for others is hard. Creating for yourself can be even harder. Perfection is something that blocks many creatives from achieving their goals and making their ideas viable in the real world. We’ll be diving into the gritty decisions, deadlines, challenges and triumphs that lead up to a finished project to find out where the line is drawn between success and satisfaction.

If you love design…

Have you ever wondered what the final moments of the design process are like? What decisions are made and what ideas got scrapped to bring a design to life? Come and listen to the industry professionals that have brought you some of the most successful products, spaces, campaigns and experiences across Australia and overseas and hear what motivates them.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Black Dog Institute in support of a mentally healthier world.
