DX x Zoom

Access On Demand

The Designer Experience is a unique community forum that blends timely trends and practical business information, design education, passion and soul. In our first virtual event held on May 20, 2020, we curated an eclectic mix of personality and talent from across the industry to present engaging content.


The lineup included a keynote with Corey Damen Jenkins, our fast-paced Design Talk series, and a panel focused on communications and marketing. There was also an enticing warehouse tour, CEU session, fun raffle, and unexpected extras sprinkled throughout.

A note from Designers Today Editor in Chief Jane Dagmi

The Designer Experience is a true collaboration beginning with the desire to educate, entertain, support and inspire.  For 2020’s spring DX, and our first digital conference, we wanted to set the tone with someone who spoke truth from the heart and was clearly in forward motion, and someone with a unique point of view and distinct story to share. Looking back at our former events, we also knew it was time for a man to keynote the show.

I sent an email to Corey Damen Jenkins. And he said Yes.

We met briefly five years ago in Atlanta. While growth was happening inside each of us, I don’t know if either one of us would have wagered that I’d be editing a national design trade magazine and he would be working on his first Rizzoli book. Our unique evolution has put us in proximity more and more.

This past winter, I went to hear him speak at the Atlanta Market. It was a solo performance with the feeling of a soliloquy, followed by a generous Q&A period. While Corey continues to accumulate accolades, he is willing to point out the failures that have, unknowingly, contributed to his success. Corey has figured how to deftly lace professionalism with personal emotion.

We admire him as a compassionate human and skilled product and interior designer, and are so excited to have him as our keynote for the DX x Zoom.
