Wichita Design Week is a week-long series of events to further engage designers of all disciplines and those who use design through connection, information, and inspiration. Design Week brings together three local chapters of national and international professional organizations to connect the Wichita design community and bring greater awareness to the benefits of design in our daily lives, businesses and community. The three associations are: AIGA: The professional association for design, IIDA: International Interior Designers Association, and the AIA: American Institute of Architects.

This years theme “Evolving Design” is intended to raise awareness of how designers and design is continually evolving to expand creatively, engage audiences, and differentiate brands,

In Wichita the impact of design can be seen at every turn from the buildings we work and live in, to the spaces we enjoy, to the area brands that sell products and services locally, nationally and internationally. Design also plays a role in our culture including festivals, the arts, and our favorite gathering places.

Wichita Design Week is intended to highlight and draw attention to the benefits of design within our community and recognize the designers and design centric companies that help transform our city into an enjoyable place to live, work and play, as the creative design leaders.
