Phoenix Design Week will have its inaugural event from October 21st-25th. The week will feature galleries during the week, showing local work of graphic, interactive and motion designers. Among the exhibits will be a display of client rejected logos, a paper sculpture showcase and a collaborative poster show with work from students from 4 different local design programs.
Friday night will kick off the weekend with the Typophile Film Fest at MadCap Theatres. The typography themed short film fest is only being shown in a few select cities, with Phoenix being lucky enough to be included in this exclusive list.
The weekend conference is being held at the Phoenix Convention Center in the heart of downtown Phoenix. The list of speakers includes the national president of the AIGA, Debbie Millman, Chaz Maviyane-Davies the “guerilla of graphic design”, Eric Hillerns, Bobby Solomon, Bennet Peji and many others. The panels, presentations, workshops and roundtable discussions held during the weekend conference are meant to bring together the design community in an unprecedented way.
