Since 2009, the Method + Madness Conference has brought together the Arizona design community for a weekend of actionable insights, hands-on education, and career fueling inspiration. It’s the two-day highlight of Phoenix Design Week and a fantastic opportunity to connect with other designers and creative professionals.
For 2017, our conference theme is “Design Belongs” — a bold declaration from the creatives and makers who are turning the desert into a blooming design hub. Like wildlife that adapts to the harsh climate and hardened landscape, the Arizona design community doesn’t just survive the desert, it thrives because of it.
Phoenix Design Week will draw together hundreds of creatives, marketing pros and students from across the state and beyond for presentations, workshops and events. This year, we are also renewing our conviction that design belongs in — and contributes greatly to — every walk of life. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of presentations and workshops based on this theme, led by both world renowned speakers and design professionals from our own backyard.
