Design Week Fort Wayne

#DWFWcontest

A big part of Design Week is finding inspiration all around you. So we’re running a five-week photo contest based on our five themes: graphic design, innovation, city design, architecture / interior design, and fashion. Each week will be devoted to a different theme, starting with graphic design and ending with fashion.
