Design Expo Raleigh 2006
will be a two week celebration of the incredible designers who call the Triangle home and all the innovative work being created here. The theme for this year's inaugural event is "Hidden Gems: Great Design in Our Own Backyard." We have a powerful and wonderful design community - it's time for the rest of the world to know about it. The purpose of Design Expo Raleigh is to present great design to the public and to give designers, both professionals and students, a forum to display and discuss their work. A unique showcase of applied arts coming together as a whole, Design Expo Raleigh promotes broader awareness of many different design disciplines and creates an opportunity for local designers to network with each other, students, and the public. Among the diverse applied arts to be represented at Design Expo Raleigh '06 are Animation, Architecture, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Textile/Fashion Design.
