The London Ontario community is a very tight-nit group of designers from a breadth of backgrounds. The local design environment is more dominantly focused in the advertising industry, handling print, graphic and other media design. However in the last several years an increase in product design roles has occurred with the growth of the tech industry.

Just over two hours away from Toronto, London is it's own little city - with lots to do. It's within a couple hours from Detroit, and less than forty minutes from some of the best beaches southern Ontario has to offer. The downtown core is seeing a resurgence of development, and new technology companies are calling London home.

Since 2016 DesignChats has been running meetup events in town, and providing a platform for designers to connect online through the London Slack community. The community is also supported by other amazing groups like Ladies that UX London running regular events and workshops.

We're looking forward to the future of the design community here in London, and we hope you'll join us.

Special thanks to the community.

Thank you for opening your doors to host our events.
