What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-Up Details

Dear IDF Toronto,

Let's meet up and network over coffee (or something stronger), share UX design insights and resources, discuss UX problems you are facing now, or just chat about anything else. It's going to be an informal, cozy meet-up with fellow designers!

25 IDF members (and some non-members) are attending

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Coffee, Introductions and Design held on Feb 22, 2019. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hi everyone, looking very forward to seeing you at a meetup soon!

Hi everyone! I'm so sorry for the last minute changes but Queen Mother Cafe cannot hold the sort of crowd that we're expecting so we're going to have to regroup elsewhere. I went over to Gladstone hotel and they have a bar that is fairly quiet on a Wednesday evening. I think this will be a great place for a meet and greet and will allow us to move about!

I would also suggest that we come with our ideas on how to engage this incredible community - if you have some ideas for fun games for us to get to know each other, please post them here! :)

Again, big apologies on the date and place change!

Hello everyone!

PLEASE REMEMBER: Today's meetup has been pushed to the 27th!

No idea how to contact everyone that's attending the event so here's to hoping that you all see it! I'll be speaking to the bar manager this evening and will update the location status to confirmed once we're good to go!

Thanks a lot,


Hi Arvind! Thanks for info! Maybe we can create a group on MeetUp, and there everyone will be able to see updates about the event:) just an idea:)

Gunel! Yes, I think this is a great idea. Would you like to co-host the event with me? Let me know. You can email me at arvind.eyunni@gmail.com and we can discuss for the next meetings. :)

Hi Arvind, I wish this rescheduling notice had gone out via email as well, like the 5-day in advance reminder notice did. I travelled downtown to the Queen Mother Cafe tonight, as did another member of the group, and didn't know what had happened to the event.

Hi Leslie! I'm so sorry for the mix up. This is exactly what I was hoping would not happen and am sad to learn that it resulted as such. I hope the next time I see you I can profusely apologize and make it up to you. I'm creating a facebook group and will try to follow up with people via email where I can.

Looking forward to meeting you.



Thanks Arvind for your reply. I was away on vacation last week but hope the second attempt at the meetup went well.

Hi guys! Can you please update us about the event? Thanks!

It' torrentuous out there. Would this meetup hold?

Hey guys, we’re sitting at the back of the cafe area! Look for a sign that says interaction design foundation!

I’m not sure but I’m am here. :)
