Method + Madness Conference | PHXDW 2015

Phoenix Design Week is a week-long celebration of design that unites the local design community and provides a forum for sharing best practices, showcasing outstanding work, and gaining inspiration. 

Method + Madness is the main event during Phoenix Design Week. It’s a two-day grassroots conference organized by community volunteers for fellow designers, illustrators, writers, and UX professionals. Method + Madness brings together world-class speakers and local experts for two full days of actionable insights, hands-on education, and fire-fueling inspiration.

For 2015 we’re returning to the beautiful Phoenix Convention Center in the heart of Downtown Phoenix. The center is within walking distance of major hotels, shopping, entertainment, restaurants, has its own dedicated stop on the METRO Light Rail line, and is about fifteen minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.


Your two-day Method + Madness conference pass also includes admission to the opening PechaKucha party on Friday, October 16, the Saturday night reception and the closing party featuring the National Poster Retrospecticus on Friday, October 23. Separate registration for these receptions is required, and you will be provided with those links as the events approach. One-day passes, a la carte tickets to the Sunday workshops and the opening and closing parties are available individually.
