From conferences to salon-style discussions, we relish in design and art events to rejuvenate us creatively. For us, inspiration is drawn from not only the topics presented but also the design and curation of events. Besides our own In/Visible Talks, here are a few favorites.
Want to get mega hands on? Check out how the Brand New Conference 2018 uses materials to make a design system that is authentic and innovative.

From fibers to Burning Man sculptures, we are inspired by the Maker Faire hosted in San Francisco and believe it has something to offer for everyone.
Because it’s important to feed your creativity beyond design immersion itself—we are a fan of the bi-monthly happenings at Canopy in San Francisco. Topics covered range from food as medicine to cannabis education.

With a broad definition of design, the LA Design Festival is a must-see because it showcases the city’s rich and abundant design culture.
We have got to tout Design Portland for its mission of bringing together the city’s diverse creative community to shape the future of design.
