Bring the transformative
power of design everywhere.


Design is for everyone. Design is everywhere, so we are too. We’re online and we pop-up in places all over the city to engage as many people as possible. And we’re committed to improving the diversity of the design field.


Design solves problems. We are entrepreneurial and flexible, we are not constrained by existing approaches, we start with real-world problems and we’re committed to using design for the greater good.


Design is collaborative. We are a participatory museum, meaning there are many ways for individuals to not only enjoy our programming and content, but to be part of it as well. We’re collaborative and community-focused.
