When Phoenix Design Week kicks off on Monday, September 24, there are plenty of ways to get in on the design-centric fun -- whether it's your life's work or you're simply an avid admirer of desirable design. To aid in your choosing process (you have plenty of options), we picked three must-attend events that'll provide different insights into the design world.

Creative Mornings includes a 20-minute lecture and breakfast. Admission to the event is free. It will continue on a monthly basis after the kick-off.
