There has been an unprecedented surge of interest in the field of design for social impact, or as it has become known – social design. Designers are looking for ways in which to incorporate more meaningful social change work into their practices.
But, where are the jobs? How do you identify and market yourself as a “social designer” and identify potential opportunities?
From social innovation and entrepreneurship to in-house and client based service design, a panel of professionals working in the field will identify areas in which they have had success. This event will explore how designers can create opportunities for themselves to expand into this emerging field.
