Friday is all about ROW DTLA. Keynote with Brooks + Scarpa followed by the most epic Design Block Party.

Design, etc. offers a full day of thought-provoking, fast-paced talks with visionaries from all walks of design. We’ll tackle big ideas both here on earth and beyond. Don’t miss Designing for 1.2 billion and the new documentary Something Like Home with Duolingo’s Jack Morgan, City of Tomorrow with Grimshaw Architects, Sense and Sensibility with Johnson Favaro, or Designing for the Moon with Melodie Yashar. Meet Galerie LA’s Dechel McKillian as she sits down with LA designers to talk about Sustainable Fashion. Silas Munro talks about how his practice embraces cultural diversity and encourages community engagement, part of a two-conversation series curated by AIGA Los Angeles. 2018 EDGE recipients Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung of Poketo sit down with Jaime Derringer of Design Milk to talk about creative entrepreneurship.

Brooks + Scarpa delivers the keynote address setting the tone and creating the context for the idea of Design with Purpose.

Stay afterwards to experience the Design Block Party. It’s the big public opening night for all participating stores, exhibitions, and installations.
