Designers Today magazine is offering a select number of spots to current SCAD seniors and graduate student who are interested in attending the virtual Designer Experience conference next week. This is an exciting opportunity to hear what is happening in the Design Community from lifestyle brands such as AphroChic’s Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason and interior textiles designer Sarah Von Dreele.

The afternoon concludes with the panel, “Writing and Publishing Your Book: From concept to completion to consumption, authors share how they got it done.” The event concludes with a virtual reception where participants have an opportunity to engage with the speakers and each other. Please consider applying for this amazing networking opportunity for students preparing to enter the design or design-writing world.
