⚡️We are starting this year with a big event! With an incredible talk from the Head of Design at Canva - Andrew Green on "Designing the Design Team at Canva".

Talk Description: How do you scale the design team at one of Australia's fastest growing startups while preserving the unique design culture that made it so special in the first place? As Canva's Head of Design, that's been Andrew's mission since joining Canva over 18 months ago. Hear about how the Canva design team works to build a unique design culture, ship amazing features and keep complex things simple.

Bio: Andrew is the Head of Design at Canva where he leads a team of Product, Content and Digital designers. Canva's mission is to create tools to democratise design - making it easy for anyone to design anything and publish anywhere. Previously he was the Head of Product Management and Design for SEEK Asia. Throughout his 15 year career, he has worked extensively both as a UX Design and Product Management leader. Previously he was a self-employed Product Designer in Melbourne and Director of User Experience at Razorfish, a design consultancy in New York.

On the 6th Feb, join us on learning, networking, or simply hang out with amazing designers!

We will also do another Meet&Greet session as last one was a clear success. Upon arrival of our meetup, we’re going to be handing out stickers to everyone.

These will be used to identify:
1. Looking for a Job
