Phoenix Design Week (*end) 2021: SANS

Join us virtually for Phoenix Design Week (*end): two full days of inspiring events and programs Saturday, October 22 & Sunday, October 23.

Phoenix Design Week is traditionally a week-long celebration of design organized by AIGA Arizona. This year we are jamming everything into a single weekend. We celebrate you and our vibrant creative community by providing a forum for sharing best practices, showcasing exceptional work, and gaining inspiration.


PHXDW has always delivered to its design community: amazing speakers; impressive venues; polished production; swanky events. But if we stripped that all away—if we were sans all the bells and whistles—would there be anything left?

YES. We would have a community that truly makes Design Week worth having. The community that built Phoenix Design Week from the ground up 13 years ago and gave it a life that survives and thrives beyond a single week and four walls.

This year we celebrate the “without”, as it’s shown us our strength within. It’s in this season of sans that we cordially invite our design community to be the serif, the color, the pattern, the texture, the dimension, the __________ that brings this event to life.
