Organised by Rye Here Rye Now
Calling all graphic designers, illustrators, digital designers, product designers, textile designers, photographers, filmmakers, and other creatives!
What: Join us online for a casual meet-up to support our current and new creative community members. Discuss design, WFH, exchange ideas or current briefs, and meet people to collaborate with all from the safety of your own home. There will even be a chance for you to take the floor and share your project with the entire group.
This month we will have three speakers talking about technology and online creative collaborations.

She will discuss online collaboration challenges and how digital platforms promise to ease the new challenges we face since the pandemic started.
