Design Yak: a monthly breakfast for creatives
We’re a tribe of creatives who meet regularly to talk about the business of design.
We get together monthly to share knowledge, skills and advice.
We have interesting conversations around the day-to-day challenges of founding, building and managing a creative business. Sometimes there’s a guest speaker, sometimes there’s a topic, sometimes it’s just about our month.
I’m Carol, the organiser. I started this event in Feb 2017 during the brief stint I had between running a mid-sized studio and working solo. I missed walking the talk with other creatives and emailed a few about meeting for breakfast. Six years later I’m no longer a practising designer – I’m co-founder of the Design Business Council – and our tribe has grown to include writers, strategists, photographers, content creators and podcast producers.
Are we a self-help group? Maybe.
Are we open and sharing? Absolutely.
No agendas, no egos.
Interested in joining us? Jump in and grab a ticket but don’t procrastinate … because of our venue, numbers are limited to 20 and that’s OK because 20 is nice number of people around the table.
Want more information? Email and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.
