LAUNCH! (formerly POGO), is GDC BC’s annual development conference for design students, graduates, educators, and employers. This event connects our emerging and professional design community through exchange, tours, workshops, and portfolio development. 

This year’s conference took place on October 14th and 15th. In addition to a fresh new rebrand, this year’s offerings includes site visits to several agencies, studios and printers; one on one portfolio reviews; and career guidance for students offered by senior GDC members. The conference also included a design educators roundtable, and a great dose of inspiring conversations to chart your creative career.
