For those who don't know (yet) Phoenix Design Week (PHXDW) 2009 is 5 days in October devoted to the celebration of the design community in the greater Phoenix area, with multiple events and conference activities throughout those five days. Included are a variety of exhibitions, open houses, workshops, presentations, activities, films and other community-growth oriented events, all centered around design and creativity.
PHXDW was the brainchild of several local creative companies and individuals who desire to see the local design community of Phoenix grow and thrive. The week and it's activities are designed to facilitate unity amongst local creatives, allowing them to interact with and learn from one another, reigniting their passion for both design as well as our local community.
