Before joining the work force as full-fledged graphic designers, recent graduates of the Graphic Design program at Red River College Brent Fisher and Sky Dheere want to address the imbalances and inequalities that plague the industry today. In their 20x20 talk, Brent and Sky present the facts behind the design industry, its wage gap, and burnout culture in general, to encourage incoming and currently-employed designers to fight these problems head-on.
Brent and Sky's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 38, on June 6 2019, at the Park Theatre.
