As we all hunker down at home with some extra free time watching our favourite HBO series and magnificent tiger documentaries on Netflix, we decided to gather a list featuring some of our favourite design talks that you can stream online for free. These should give you a jolt of inspiration and motivation during this time of uncertainty. From Forest Young walking through a few of his projects at Wolf Olins to Debbie Millman lending us an insight to the complete history of branding in 20 minutes! There’s a great mix of topics to ignite some more creativity to your current project. With this list we look at not just big names like Ted & Creative Mornings, but also smaller, more design focused conferences like Design & Content in Vancouver, and Struktur Event in Austin. Enjoy!

Ps – if there’s a design talk online that you think we’d love, please share it with us!
