RGD and IABC/Toronto are partnering on a joint PD event that will explore the trends and strategies that will shape our digital world in 2017 and beyond.
More brands are bringing new technology to each stage of the audience journey, and using dynamic data in more creative ways to communicate more effectively online. Join our four interactive design and visual communication experts as they share real-life case studies of online projects that demonstrate the design communications trends shaping our digital world now and in the future.
