Bold: Break Out

Nobody ever said breaking into the design world was easy. Plus in a city as culturally rich as Chicago—there just isn’t one, clean path to pulling it off. So how do you do it?

This December, we learn by example. Join us for a showcase celebrating our city’s budding talent from all walks of life. Emerging designers with 0-3 years in the industry will share stories of their big moves and the obstacles they surmounted to make them. Come prepared to get inspired and maybe even share your own story with new friends. There will be snacks, drinks, and networking between speakers to get to know your design community.
