Now in its eighth year, DesignPhiladelphia seeks to highlight the ways design can innovate, problem-solve and elevate everyday life, bringing together more than 400 creatives from fashion, architecture, film, mural arts and other disciplines. In partnership with UArts, the citywide festival hosts more than 100 events in interesting locations, from churches to a botanic garden to a community-built pop-up playground. Examine Jordan Elise Perme’s charmingly macabre faux-taxidermy sculptures at Horrible Adorables, watch models travel by tricycle at the CandyCoated Trunk Show, screenprint T-shirts with Common Press leaders at Printing in the Open and more.
