Keynote: 10 Ways to Create Space

Clearing out mental clutter and distractions can cultivate more space for the things (and people) that you love and prevent professional burnout. Creative Director Whitney Holden will share with us ways to create space, both in design work and in personal life.

About Whitney Holden

Whitney lives in the DFW area with her darling husband, rambunctious pre-kindergartener, and two cats. She has strong feelings about Japanese barbecue. Karaoke and yoga are her two favorite pastimes (but not at the same time).

Opening Act: The Future of Design

Eduardo and Twinkle from our AIGA UTD Student Group will be looking to the future of design. In their talk, they'll discuss five things Gen Z will explore for solving creative problems.
