Today is the start of the Seattle Design Festival, a celebration of how design affects the lives of people — driving innovation, adding beauty and making Seattle a more livable city. This 10 day festival features speakers, tours, exhibits, films and activities for the whole family.
As you travel around Seattle, you may notice 8-foot tall columns/markers placed around some of Seattle’s landmarks. Located in front of the Seattle Art Museum, the column to the right was created by created by the Seattle Design firm, Vivitiv as part of Design Marks. AIGA Seattle invited 25 local design firms to participate in this event and they have created location markers, each with a QR code that leads to a video. Viewing the video will “connect people more deeply to their community through design—enhancing their personal experience of that location.”
The Seattle Design Festival runs September 16-25th.
