Design is For All


Design is for thinkers and doers, listeners and seers, go-getters and problem-solvers. It’s for walkers, bikers, drivers, and Metro riders. It’s for writers and readers, game players and web creators, food lovers and museum-goers. It’s for makers and appreciators, and it’s always up for debaters.

Design: it’s a people thing. And in the DMV, we’re home to some of the smartest, coolest, realest, and greatest people around—not to mention one of the most exciting and innovative design cultures in the world.

That’s why, once again, we’re making a week of it all. And in 2018, we have more to celebrate than ever before—more partners, more experts, more formats, more venues, more incredible work. It’s DC Design Week: by our city’s humans, for people like you.
