Scheduled presenters include:
A design challenge with a twist! Product Runway puts teams of design professionals from multiple disciplines in a fashion design competition design and create (yes we mean fabricate) a garment or accessory out of standard architectural finish materials such as tile, upholstery, carpet, and wallcoverings. Each team will have 2 hours to conceptualize, design, and build their creation. Don't worry guys, this year models are provided! At the end of the challenge, each team's design will get to walk the runway and show off their design to a team of judges and all of Wichita’s design community!
Can’t participate in the challenge? No problem! Join us for cocktails, mingle with fellow colleagues, enjoy the show, and make sure to vote for your favorite team!
In conjunction with AIA Wichita, SMPS Wichita is hosting a History of Wichita Architecture Panel. Please join us to hear from some of our local experts about the architecture that shaped Wichita into the beautiful city it is today!

Tomorrow’s marketing playbook is already written and the next generation of creators are already in the game. It’s time to stop blaming budgets, dreaming of fewer deliverables and idolizing traditional advertising. Instead, we must once again stare ideas in the face, accept social media as the game-changing opportunity it is, and make now, ask questions later. Join us September 27th as we discuss the how to thrive in the Experience Age of Creative Advertising with Dustin Joyce.
Dustin Joyce is a Creative Director and a self-described ad-nerd at PERISCOPE Advertising in Minneapolis, MN. He recently exposed Deadpool’s package to the world with “Tiny Hands by Trolli,” dropped world’s rarest sneakers with James Harden and Adidas, and led design for a “Weirdly Woven” fashion collection in collaboration with Mokuyobi Threads.
Dustin is a graduate of Wichita State University with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. Since moving to Minneapolis in 2007 he has been building a career in creative advertising with a focus on infusing ideas and technology for brands like American Express, BEHR Paint, Buffalo Wild Wings, Fossil, P.F. Chang’s, Trolli Gummies, and Founders Brewing Co.
Join us for powerhouse panel discussion with four emerging designers on the ins and outs of working for an agency, studio, in-house or freelance career. Ringmaster and Emcee, Adrian Ornelas will take them through 5-Rounds of tough questioning to knock out the differences in career paths, how design is evolving, and what they are doing to evolve as designers. This event is part of Wichita Design Week 2018 and a national EMERGE week with multiple AIGA chapters participating. AIGA EMERGE: Tailored Experiences to Empower Emerging Designers.
