ASK + GIVE: December 2022

We know that the design world can be siloed. So we want to break down those borders and get to know our fellow designers. How can you best work with design specialists on your team? Or, maybe you're considering venturing into a design niche. We've gathered different design specialists from around Chicago, so that you can get to know more about your peers and your possibilities. How did they get into the field they're in? What is their day like? What kind of projects do they work on? Find out on Dec. 14 at Hopleaf.
