why I design
Museum of Vancouver invites Vancouverites to explore and celebrate innovation in action. 25+ designers stationed throughout the museum’s galleries discuss their work during Why I Design. Why I Design spotlights the process of invention.
This year’s Why I Design pays particular attention to Social Impact through design strategies of upcycling and repurposed materials. Participating designers will engage you with stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things you’ve never seen before. You can ask the designers—ranging from those emerging their careers to innovative leaders in international corporations—what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.
