Southern Design Summit 2019

Mar 18 2019 - 3:21am


Join the IDSA Atlanta Chapter for the first ever Southern Design Summit on March 30th!


The Southern Design Summit is a one-day event where we will explore overlapping design disciplines within our field. We will have engaging speakers and panels, as well as presentations on interesting and emerging design tools. The Summit will also include presentations from the South District school's IDSA Merit finalists! Note: These student presentations will not be judged, they are re-presenting their Round 1 presentations. 

Come see us in Atlanta for a great day of design discussion and community building. More details will be posted here soon!
