Design Assembly is delighted to present our DA Autumn Conversations Series for 2021, taking place across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in April.

One year on from the emergence of Covid-19 in Aotearoa and we have all been affected by the global pandemic in many and different ways. 

It’s time to check with you all and ask how are you doing? How is your studio or practice going? 

Join your professional local community as we navigate the topic of The Business of Design amidst Covid-19. It’s hard enough finding your way as a designer but how do you create and maintain a thriving business that aligns with your life? 

We’ll hear from our local panel as they share their stories, tips and tracks that have helped them navigate the last year in the business of design. 

Facilitated by Donna Maxwell of Running Mate, the Auckland panel will feature:

  • Elena Keith - Managing Partner, Seven
  • Annie Dow - Managing Director, Dow Goodfolk
  • Alister Coyne - Director of Design, Auror


    Light refreshments and beverages included


    Free for DA Friends.
    General Admission: $30 + Fees
