After the success of our Toronto Mixer in November with the Design Foundation, we’ve decided to go on a Canadian mixer splurge! With upcoming mixers in Ottawa, Waterloo, Toronto (and perhaps also Vancouver and Calgary), and in the spirit of building community, Ottawa’s Design Mixer is all about the idea of designers taking that extra step to better their communities.
In Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point, he speaks about how little things can make a big difference. With all of the information and visual noise that surrounds us today, what are the little things that designers can do to contribute to our society to bring order to the chaos? (Event Posting)
Come out and enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and door prizes from our sponsors. Hear some great speakers discuss their perspectives on the importance of design in our community with 5 ideas and 5 images. Meet and reconnect with colleagues and friends in the Ottawa design community to discuss why the design community is important to you and why it is valuable to the design industry.
When: Wednesday, February 23 • 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Theme: Why is design important to our community?
Where: Hard Rock Café (upstairs) in the Byward Market – 73 York St, Ottawa, ON
Robert B. Smith R.G.D. President/Creative Director, GreenMelon
