Upstate Design Week

Upstate Design Week is a week-long celebration of the transformative power of design, and the world-class work and industry leadership happening right here in Upstate New York.



Designers make what is today and what will be tomorrow. Stronger connections between design and our cultural, educational and business communities mean a stronger future for our region.

We bring together designers and connect our communities, from Buffalo to the Capital District, Hudson Valley to the Adirondacks, with fun, educational events that inspire.



This year’s festivities will feature Aaron Draplin, the first ever Upstate Marketplace featuring products designed and made in the region, a design educator symposium, and a wide variety of educational talks and workshops with something for everyone: sign painting, skateboard design, responsive web design, emerging technologies, and more.



More details and schedule will be announced soon. For more information or to get involved, contact Michelle Bersani at
