Most West Michigan Design Week events are free, to support our goal of design accessibility and understanding to all. The organizing team is all volunteer. Our costs come from venue fees, speaker travel costs, refreshments at events, advertising, audio/video and photography, and printed materials.
West Michigan Design Week wouldn’t be possible without the support of the community. By sponsoring WMDW you're not only helping spread awareness of the importance of design to our community, you're gaining visibility for your organization with hundreds of professional designers, business decision makers, and students from across West Michigan.
