DENVER DESIGN WEEK – Equity by Design

July 13, 2016

We are proud to be an inaugural partner of Denver Design Week, the eight-day showcase that celebrates and elevates design in our community. From education sessions to home and studio tours to networking events, Denver Design Week is an opportunity to shine a light on our local creative community—and to raise the bar for good design in Colorado and beyond.


EMarthaBennett2quity by Design:
Why We Need to Represent the Demographics We Serve


Our Titanium Sponsor and Community Board of Director Member Martha Bennett will be participating on the panel.  


Tickets are available here

Why are we involved? Because we know firsthand the power of good design to shape our lives in meaningful ways. Because we feel an obligation to contribute to the ongoing dialogue about how to harness the power of design to improve our world. And because we believe in supporting the people, businesses, and organizations who make Denver such a special place to live.

We hope you’ll join us at Denver Design Week, July 8-15. With 28 events to choose from, there’s something for everyone—topics include architecture, graphic design, city planning, branding, interiors, real estate, development, landscaping, technology, kitchens, service, preservation, design thinking, and beer, to name a few.

Interested? Check out the schedule online, follow along on their social media, and join us at the Launch Party on July 8!

This is a big deal for Denver, the design community—and us. Be part of this initiative and join us in celebrating our local creative community!
