In 2014, AIGA Wichita launched Wichita Design Week, consisting of a series of events including panel discussions on the impact of design on business and culture, guest speakers, a presentation and beer tasting event that delved into the journey behind a successful beer brand.

Our aim this year is to widen the scope and recognize a broad variety of outstanding design within our city, including interior design, architecture, game and film design principals, UX design, graphic design and more under the theme “Design Makes Things Better.”

Wichita Design Week starts September 28 with a photo contest and runs through October 2, with events sponsored by AIGA Wichita, IIDA Wichita, AIA Wichita, and Bethany College at Mindfire Academy.
