Baltimore Design Week is back for its fifth year.
The Oct. 17-22 event organized by AIGA Baltimore offers a series of events for designers, but it’s not limited to designers only.

Given the importance of design in developing technology that’s easy and desirable to use, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of entry points for the tech community. A Wednesday night talk on futurism and design featuring the Transhumanist Party’s presidential candidate at the University of Baltimore is just one example.

Design is embedded into many facets of the city’s creative community, and the final day’s MAKE/SHIFT events bring it all together. On Saturday, there’s a chance to use your own hands in a series of workshops held at sites across the city. Get experience with screen printing, hand lettering and using apps that help you work when you’re not at a desk.
The week is set to end in a fitting combination of inspiration and celebration with the MAKE/SHIFT closing party on the night of Oct. 22. Held at Price Modern, the event features presentations from former White House Creative Director Ashleigh Axios and letterer/illustrator Mary Kate McDevitt. Plus, there’s a makers market, and live music from Oslo.
