SQ1 CON is Advanced Design’s annual design conference. The conference was founded in 2017 by a small group of students at the University of Illinois-Chicago looking to make their voices heard within the evolving climate of design education. Since then, it has evolved to having an international presence—attracting an audience of nearly 1,000 attendees from over 17 states and 4 countries within its first two years. SQ1 CON began as a design conference focused on visual communication and sketching techniques, and has since grown to encompass various design practices and dialogues. As we look forward to the future of this conference under pressure of a global health crisis, Advanced Design is eager to take up the challenge of curating our most immersive experience yet. 
    2020 was a year of constant change. This year, we are looking to reflect on human resilience and our ability to adapt to change—we now live in a new paradigm that is still being defined through design, innovation, and policy making. We are excited to present our upcoming speaker line-up to help start the conversation. As we continue striving towards a “new normal”, we cannot help but reflect on how the last year has impacted our day-to-day. Advanced Design is excited to announce our very first digital event. As we continue to live in a rapidly changing environment due to the ongoing pandemic, we are also eager to promote networking and workshopping at a global scale in this new digital conference format.
