Wild at Heart @GLUE 2022

By 16-07-2022

Let’s say you’re a starting designer. How cool is it then to spar with renowned designers and with other startups about work, career and running your own studio? This is possible during Wild at Heart.

During Wild at Heart, you can talk to experienced designers. Who are their sources of inspiration? What decisions made them successful? How do they look at their clients? How do they maintain a balance between their work and private lives? And what tips and tricks can they draw from their greatest successes and failures? You will get the answers to these and other questions on 15 September during Wild at Heart @GLUE Amsterdam.

Wild at Heart consists of a series of 5 round table discussions in which starting designers enter into conversation with designers who have already won their spurs. There are 10 tables with 4 to 6 people per table.
