The third edition of Element Talks is here! A conference on practical and entrepreneurial aspects of designer's work.
The main subject of this year's conference is COOPERATION. We will discuss different forms of cooperation taken up by designer, whether it's in the office, with a client, a subcontractor or with another designer.
Apart from interesting lectures, the participants will also be able to attend a myriad of workshops - both day-long and short ones, which will take place during the conference.
You'll also have a chance to take part in a simulation of job interviews led by the representatives of top Polish design studios and agencies. After the meeting each applicant will be given a feedback by the potential employer. More info and signup here.
This year we've got an even bigger networking space for you, which will allow you to make new contacts and exchange business cards during the breaks. You'll also be able to have a snack with other participants.
You seemed to really enjoy our partners' stands last year. This year there'll be even more of them. You'll have a chance of getting some advice from pros, discover interesting services, buy books and gadgets, or simply chill while charging your laptop.
