The week opens with PechaKucha Night on Monday, Oct. 22, at the State Room, in a format similar to Ignite Salt Lake: Presenters can use 20 slides each, shown for only 20 seconds, in adrenaline-fueled talks on a wide array of subjects, from the arts to architecture, photography to product design. As is the case in other cities, Design Week will feature workshops, a series of films, lectures and open studio tours at different sites around town. Salt Lake Design Week has grown since 2011, and its look at creativity in design is a window on possible transformations our world is undergoing.
Saturday, Oct. 27, will close out Design Week with Shutterstock’s Pixels of Fury, a design competition at the Grand Hall of the Union Pacific Depot—costumes are welcome. The opportunity to see designers do what they do best under fire is an enlightening and dramatic way to round out the week’s events. (Brian Staker)
