Design Briefs is a partnership between AIGA Toledo and the Toledo Museum of Art.

The event is an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to introduce a challenge their company is facing to our community’s designers, developers, and creatives to receive concentrated Design Thinking feedback.

During the event, local business owners, organizations, or aspiring entrepreneurs present their story along with a specific business challenge they’d like to overcome, receiving concentrated Design Thinking feedback from a panel of design and business professionals. The attendees will then have the opportunity to interact with the presenters during breakout sessions, as they collaboratively explore ideas on how to overcome the highlighted obstacles.

The theme of our second bi-annual Design Briefs event is “The Great Outdoors.”
