Festival registration is open! Design Week 2020 runs virtually from August 3-7.
As a design organization, we recognize that the system is working exactly as it was designed. We recognize our part in the system and our shared responsibility to dismantle white supremacy.
This year, we're shifting to a virtual format with a tighter focus. Here's what you need to know about programming, timing, and ticketing.
Think back to your beginnings as a designer. Do you remember someone who took the time to review your work or offered a tip that helped you navigate your first steps into the field? You could be that person to someone else.
Based on our current research and understanding, we have made the hard decision to postpone Design Week Portland. The festival is now slated to run August 1-8, 2020.
The newly launched DWP Design Fellowship is an opportunity to engage with our team over a 7-month period to support the design efforts required to bring the festival to life across various channels. The selected designer will drive the look and feel of the festival in 2020 across all print and digital touch points, and will promote their work through all of DWP's channels.
Another incredible year. Another opportunity to come together as a community. Another chance to consider the state of design and where we're going. Thank you.
