Kansas City

Kansas City is one of the epicenters of design in this country… but I bet you didn’t know that. With one of the largest numbers of designers per capita, KC is a community of industrial designers, graphic designers, interior designers, architects and so much more. The IDSA community in KC is present but is looking to connect, inform, and grow to be the force we know it can be. KC is home to firms such as Hallmark, KEM STUDIO, Garmin, insight2design, Dimensional Innovations, Engenious Design and so many more. Our chapter’s mission is to foster a strong design community through networking, professional development, and be an open source of communication to provide an equitable IDSA Chapter for our members.

As a member of the Center for Architecture and Design, a unique organization to Kansas City, IDSA has a direct connection to and part of the pulse of design in KC - through KC Design Week, Student Careers Day, Cocktails & Conversations, and a wide variety of other events.

Chair, Brett Pearson, Senior Designer at KEM STUDIO, looks to spark a new life into the chapter and is set on doing that collaboratively. If you have any questions, ideas, or opportunities please reach out to Brett via email idsa.kc@gmail.com. You may also connect with Korie Twiggs, IDSA Community Manager at koriet@idsa.org or by phone at (703)707-6000.
