Design Your Future
This event is for emerging, intermediate, or even advanced designers who are looking for clarity with their next career move.

Whether you’re a recent or soon-to-be graduate, an aspiring career changer, or a seasoned pro, any designer can set achievable goals to grow into the profession — and ultimately, land that first, second, or seventeenth role.



  • Learn the anatomy of a SMART goal and how to make one
  • Use a values-based approach to consider the right area to set your goal(s), such as building skills for the job you want, networking, public speaking, and more
  • Get tips for meeting your goals and staying accountable
  • Create at least one goal that you can take with you to get set up for success in 2022!

This webinar is free and open to the public on Zoom.
