An in depth look at the state of digital agencies demonstrates that most will go out of business within the next several years. The few that remain will either have dramatically changed or struggle to stay alive. Let’s discuss the future of our industry and the forces that will shape the next decade. If you work at, own or operate, work with or are thinking of starting a digital agency you should come join the discussion.

This talk is led by Brian Pullen, Design + Strategy Lead at The Working Group. Brian has been creative director of more than 200 digital projects ranging from websites to apps and games in his 12 year career. Recently these projects have been with a diverse group of great organizations like Playstation, Random House, Rogers, Grammys and Sony Pictures.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the state of the industry from an economic level.
  • Learn about the challenges faced by our clients building in house design teams.
  • Discuss the various opportunities and models being explored to thrive in this market.
