May 6 2015 - 12:52pm

From breakdancing to breakout sessions, IDSA’s 2015 Midwest District Design Conference made quite a splash in St. Louis. Professionals, students, speakers and sponsors met at the INTERSECTION May 1-2.

“What an amazing weekend @IDSA #idsamidwest15!,” tweets Stephen Wurth, conference chair and Midwest District VP. “Thanks again to the 15 incredible speakers and 180+ engaged attendees.”

Wurth, who spoke on “Three Fundamental Frameworks for Design Innovation,” kept followers posted on the latest conference developments:
