NURI DUCASSI: The Icebreaker Connection. How a Cuban-American designer brings sunshine infused punch and energy to the pages of the Toronto Star from her tropical South Florida base. 

ANDREW MERRIAM: Designers as the world’s most ambitious salespeople: What I’ve learned as a non-designer following designers for 2 years.

YURI VICTOR: Web design is dead. The future of design is undergoing an evolution as audiences move away from websites to environments where designers have little control or capabilities such as Snapchat, Apple News, Facebook Instant Articles, or Accelerated Pages. This talk will discuss the death of websites and apps, embracing change, and what's next for designers.
