Adapting to the challenges presented by the new normal, the Northern Mindanao-based Oro Design Collective brings back the wildly-successful Oro Design Conference for a third edition on February 20 (1:00PM – 6:30PM), now hosted digitally and completely free for all. Presented through a Zoom web conference, ODC 2021 will also be broadcasted on Facebook and YouTube for ease of access.

The first of its kind when staged last 2019, ODC has since been preaching the gospel of good design and creativity to Mindanaoans for the past three years, the last two editions fetching more than 200+ attendees each. With no intention of breaking the streak, and as a response to the tenuous conditions and challenges many of our creatives undoubtedly face with the current pandemic, the collective decided to move the conference online and sans paywall for creatives from NorMin and beyond.

Championing local talent, ODC 2021’s lineup of speakers will go beyond graphic design and also touch on topics concerning marketing, curation, and design initiatives. Mirroring this wide-ranging scope of themes and the breadth of design’s impact on society, the online edition is free and open to everyone. New Zoom slots are up for grabs here:
