LEARN, COLLABORATE, HANG OUT

Not everything can be learned in a class. Listen as professionals teach you tips, tricks, and techniques they use in their fields. Expose yourself to new ideas outside of your major. Grab your laptop and a sketchbook to get most out of your conference experience!

Come ready to meet, be involved, and get feedback from people who know what they’re doing. Leave the formalities behind and engage with top designers. Ask anything you want, from what it’s like to work in the field to the meaning of life. Remember they used to be students, too.

Kick back and hang out with speakers, sponsors, and students from all over. Make new friends and reunite with old ones. The conference is built for you to have a good time. Relax and have fun over free food, in between workshops or at one of the after-parties.

HISTORY

After a brief hiatus In 2012, we decided to bring the conference back in full force, and it’s been going strong ever since, with over 400 attendees in 2013, an all-time high. We have expanded our content to include both industrial and interaction design, and we hope to continue growing even further. Thought At Work has always aimed to keep the content fresh and interesting to our generation, since students know what students want to learn.

In addition to our lectures and workshops, Thought At Work offers a variety of unique networking events every year. In 2012, we hosted a sketching & rendering competition between two of RIT’s talented visiting professors. In 2013, we had an afterparty at local restaurant Cure, and events at the Lovin’ Cup Café, right outside RIT. Keep an eye out for updates on what’s coming in 2015!
