Designers and design lovers will converge at the fourth annual Phoenix Design Week from September 24 through September 30 at Phoenix Convention Center.

The seven days of events will include a quick bus trip to Tucson with AIGA Arizona, "Pedal Craft Two," a second edition of the poster show-meets-cycling event, and a two-day conference dubbed "Here & Now," which will close out the week.

Organizers continue filling out the schedule, which includes Jessica Walsh, Eddie Opara, Armin Vit, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Kenneth Fitzgerald, Sam Harrison, and Rich Roat as speakers at the conference.

Locals interested in showing work at one of the exhibitions or speaking at "Here & Now" can apply to do so via the event's website.

Early bird tickets are available now through August 24 at and range from $25 to $125, depending on AIGA membership level, whether you're a student, and if neither applies. After August 24, tickets will cost between $50 and $195.
