Find Your Path in the Evolving Design Industry: Where Can You Go?

There are consistent internal and external factors that are shaping career paths for creatives and designers. We can choose to take an active role in our own paths and shape the future of the industry. This intimate three-part event series will be full of discussions, community, and action plans. Attend all three events for the full experience or the individual event closest tied to your journey.

Workshop One: Where Can You Go/Learning

Just like Google Maps, you’re at point A and want to get to point B. You can choose the fastest route or avoid highways, tolls, or ferries. And if you take a left instead of a right, you’ll hear “Re-Routing, Re-Routing.” Often times, Google Maps will give you a few options. With all the twists and turns, Google Maps will get you to where you want to go. Our career paths are the same way.

Join AIGA and TARRA for a workshop about career paths. We’ll discuss trends and future jobs. If you think back to 2010, the Design Industry looked different. The skills, programs, and turnaround times were different than today. What will it look like in 2025?

We’ll work through a self-evaluation on identifying internal and external factors in the options you have as potential career paths. We’ll work to answer: How do I map out my career ambitions, identify real needs and take actionable steps towards achieving them?
