Over recent years we have built up a close working relationship with the Atlanta Design Festival and have been honoured to have contributed on three occasions. One of the many disappointments of 2020 has been the postponement of the Festival. But Festival organisers MA! are nothing if not adaptive and innovative. Instead of holding a physical festival this year, they converted the Festival to an online event from 12th to 20th September.
We were delighted to see the work we completed for them about the size and scale of the Atlanta Design Economy platformed in one of the sessions. The presentation can be found at https://atlantadesignfestival.net/
We’re currently thinking about how design might help cities and places improve their recovery from the economic and social impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. And of course, we look forward to returning to Atlanta in 2021 to contribute to the Festival again.
