AIGA Houston Announces Design Week 2015!

Houston Design Week 2015, held September 18–26, is bringing a design-focused programming lineup to venues across the city. We have top architects, graphic designers, design historians, writers and scientists from around the country joining us for discussion and dialogue about design and the intersections between design disciplines. There’s something for the designer, creative professional and the general public, alike.

“Houston Design Week 2015 is definitely a labor of love for us. Not only is it a chance for us to bring a week’s worth of great programming to the Houston creative community, but by bringing in designers whose work crosses multiple disciplines – from architecture, to publishing, to environmental design – we can demonstrate design’s impact on the wider public. Design Week is our way of inviting all of Houston to join the creative conversation.”—Andy Rich, AIGA Houston President

Keep checking back as we announce the names and events that will make up Design Week this September. And also make sure to follow us through the various social channels (including our Design Week Twitter handle)!
