Design with Purpose.

Thanks for joining us for the 9th Annual LA Design Festival!

Mark your calendars for the Design Field Trip: Vancouver.


Honoring our city's rich design culture.

The LA Design Festival honors our city’s rich design culture and celebrates our status as a global design capital. Our definition of design is purposely broad to ensure that our festival is reflective of LA’s diversity and talent.  The Festival is the only citywide festival of its kind, featuring events throughout LA.

From architecture and interiors to graphic, industrial, fashion, set, costume, and experiential design, the LA Design Festival showcases the best of the local design scene as well as some exciting national and international voices.

The LA Design Festival would not be possible without the participation of the LA design community, our generous sponsors, and our amazing brain trust of designers and mentors.

The LA Design Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.


"I am not sure I have a specific advice for a young architect, and at times I still feel like I am one of them, but there is something I can share. I have never chosen a job solely because it paid well or seemed convenient and yet I found myself being in a place I never imagined possible 20 years ago. I always followed a genuine interest in being involved in what matters the most, and as far as I am concerned, it has always paid off."
