Let’s Get Real About Trends at D22 NYC
by Andrew Gibbs on 09/27/2022 | 3 Minute Read
The best design is all about balance. Think cutting-edge and classic. Refined and chaotic. Timeless and timely.
As we’ve been working on the lineup for this year’s Dieline Conference, we’ve been thinking a lot about trends—and as it turns out, that’s another area where balance is absolutely critical.
As creative practitioners, it’s essential that we stay on top of trends. And that’s why at Dieline Conference on Oct. 20, we’ll be book-ending the entire event with the two-part 2023 Dieline Trend Report. Dieline Founder and CEO Andrew Gibbs will kick things off with a discussion of the emerging materials and sustainable design trends for the coming year and beyond, and Dieline Partner Jessica Deseo will close the show by detailing innovative trends in package design and branding.
Over the years, Dieline’s Trend Report has become an essential companion for industry professionals—but ultimately, you have to know how to put it to use. The key isn’t to just try to ride the wave of any given trend, but to build upon it—or build completely beyond it. And that’s exactly why we’re bringing the brilliant Madison Utendahl of Utendahl Creative to the event.
In her session “Becoming the ‘Antidote’ to the Traditional Creative Agency,” Utendahl will discuss how her Black-founded, women-led studio bucks the norm by reveling in anti-trends and getting to the heart of brands with both soul and purpose.
This year, Dieline is part of Advertising Week New York. Join us in person to explore myriad trends across the creative industries, or join us virtually from the comfort of your studio, where you can stream the event alongside your colleagues for just $219.
But hurry—because in-person passes to this high-level event are limited to 125, and once they’re sold out, they’re sold out. Don’t miss out on the packaging event of the year, which can wholly revolutionize your career. Register today!
