Sioux Falls Design Week is a celebration of all things design in our community—a place where architects, landscape designers, fashion designers, graphic designers and more can all bump elbows and explore the latest trends in their industries. MJM had an opportunity to help with the event design and promotion.
Event Design for a Week of Design Events
Since it started in 2014, Design Week has had good traction among the design-savvy in downtown Sioux Falls. But this year, they wanted to increase their efforts to reach out to the wider Sioux Falls community. When the Sioux Falls Design Center approached MJM with this problem, we decided to speak in a design language that anyone with a basement rec room could relate to: board games!
The process of designing something can often feel like a game—with bursts of creative inspiration that move you forward, niggling practicalities that move you backwards and trains of thought that bring you right back to where you started.

We hoped this metaphor would help demystify the design process and provide a welcome mat for anyone interested in learning more about design. We also just thought it would be really fun (which it was).

The great thing about Sioux Falls Design Week is that it brings together design-minded folks from several different disciplines; the tricky thing is finding a way to unite all of these entities under a single umbrella. This year’s line-up included everything from parklets to 3D printing to dresses made from construction materials.
