Join us at Creative Edge for a social learning & networking experience to find your winning "edge" as a designer
About this Event

Have you been stuck in your design career, unsure of how to land the job, get the promotion, make more money or strike out on your own to start that business? Have you ever wondered why some designers get multiple job offers from top companies but it seems infinitely unattainable for you? That’s because we all need to find our “edge” that other people see as valuable but it’s often elusive to the best of us.

Join us for a transformative social learning workshop and guided mentorship experience that helps you uncover your next steps and get unstuck, in one fine evening with other like-minded professionals.

This magical event is unlike any other you have attended. The event is divided into 3 parts:
1. Partnered Social Learning

No boring lectures or self-bragging talks that you fall asleep to - you will learn to uncover:

  • Your true personal brand that makes people remember you immediately
  • Powerful storytelling techniques that will get your portfolio case study noticed by hiring managers at top companies

You will actively with your assigned partner under the guidance of your dynamic host. You are required to practice active listening skills throughout activities.

You will change partners multiple times throughout the evening to maximize your chances of making meaningful professional connections.


2. Rapid Fire Portfolio Review

Attendees have the opportunity to submit their portfolios for our guest host, product designer Kerry McPhearson with experience working with world-class companies such as Disney, for a rapid review during the event.

Attendees who did not get a chance to submit their portfolio before the event may be the opportunity to request an impromptu review during the event if time permits.

3. Guided Conscious Mentoring

Throughout the night, you will form meaningful connections with many other attendees through a carefully-guided and activity-based process. Your networking experience will be industry-specific as we divide the venue into sections where people from adjacent industries can connect in a non-awkward, meaningful and relaxed environment.

Event Perks

Before the event ends, we will announce exciting perks available exclusively to attendees from our generous sponsors. The perks may include:

  • Raffles for free products and services from our sponsors
  • UI/UX design courses and portfolio class discounts exclusively from Path Unbound
  • Referral incentives from Path Unbound
