-After attending my first design conference last year, I wanted to experience a community again in the same way, and I wanted to showcase Tallahassee. I saw that other cities around the country have week long events, Design Weeks, and after researching into it I realized that I could make it happen right here in town!
What do you want visitors and locals to know about Design Week Tallahassee that they may not already know?
-I want people to see the great talent that Tallahassee has, and understand that design is essential to a great city. It’s not just about the art, but about building a better city!
Is Design Week Tallahassee just for Designers?
-The workshops and talks are aimed at designers, but anyone can enjoy the talks and meetups! Come meet designers, learn from them, see the creative community, and have some fun.
What does Design Week Tallahassee hope to bring to the Tallahassee Community?
-I think any sort of meeting of the minds always produces great ideas. I hope that we can work together to create new projects in town and inspire each other and other people.
What’s next for Design Week Tallahassee?
-It’s only Day 2 but the response has been amazing so I definitely forsee another Design Week next year! I’d love to make it bigger, and bring in more people from outside of Tallahassee so that they can see the city and what we have to offer.
What social media does Design Week Tallahassee use?
