Design in Public

Design in Public celebrates all the ways that design makes life better for Seattle. We nurture relationships among designers, citizens, city leaders, and future-thinking business innovators. We catalyze change by supporting imagination, vision and participation in the creation of the place we all want to live.

Design in Public believes in a future Seattle—recognized as a world design capital—where citizens, designers and leaders work together to create their shared best city.
