What is Me, Myself, and Design?

Me, Myself, & Design (or MMD for short), is a one day conference for students and emerging designers that challenges the perception of design beyond the classroom.

Expand your knowledge on what you thought you knew about: problem solving, side projects, collaboration, and presenting your work. MMD will also feature panels on efficiency hacks and career paths, and portfolio reviews.

No laptop needed, just bring a notebook, pen, and your portfolio. Lunch is also included.
