Each year it gets better. Salt Lake Design Week (SLDW) brings together the state’s top thinkers and doers in architecture and design with studio tours, pro panels, and cross-disciplinary discussion. All sponsored annually by Utah’s chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). We’ll even be hosting an engaging panel here at our COLLECTIVE offices and a hands-on studio tour and panel with one of our favorite innovative metal fabricators, Meta Designs. Of the chock full of awesome roster for the week, here’s a handful of highlights that we’re particularly keen on checking out.
