Salt Lake Design Week

The local design scene has been exploding in the past several years, and in 2011, Salt Lake Design Week joined Design Weeks in major cities around the globe to celebrate the best of design. Design covers a wide array of topics in which form as well as function makes items better, and in turn improves the quality of our lives. Designers in AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) and other professional organizations for creatives as well as anyone else who loves great design will find it an opportunity to explore their passion.

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)
