Design Milk + Clever Podcast Present the WantedDesign Online Conversation Series

As many of you know, NYCxDESIGN was cancelled this May due to COVID-19 but we decided we wanted to keep the design conversations going. Together with Clever and WantedDesign, we are excited to announce an online conversation series happening for the next two weeks! From May 11-22, 2020, you can tune into exciting live talks, new Clever podcast episodes, and special content from design experts and industry leaders.

Now more than ever, connection is important, and it will be design and creative thinking that will help propel us forward towards a better, more positive future. We’re very excited about all the topics that will be covered in the next two weeks and can’t wait to learn more from all the special guests and presenters. We hope you’ll connect with us and tune in!
