Co-founder in collaboration with Hilary Jay in 2005. DesignPhiladelphia is an annual citywide initiative that foregrounds the breadth and depth of the design community in the city. With over one hundred events during a ten day period each year, DesignPhiladelphia is one of the largest design events of its kind in country. Uniting design, business, education, retail, city governance, and the public, we created DesignPhiladelphia to galvanize the design community and to manifest the power of design to lead the creative economy in the city. In 2014 DesignPhiladelphia celebrated its tenth year.
