Alexandria is known for its deep roots in American history, its craftsmanship and trade, and its diverse community. And, of course, for being the last beacon of civilization in The Walking Dead. We believe that the best way to celebrate and value our community is through the practice of design—through innovative solutions, beautiful presentation, and emotionally-charged experiences. Design Alexandria seeks to elevate the practice of every local design professional and to promote the city as a design capital.
Join us to learn, connect, and find opportunities to do more great work. We partner with local design studios and professionals to cover a variety of topics, including visual design, web and mobile development, running a design business, dealing with the emotional punches of the industry, and formal art theory. Come prepared to share your experience, to broaden your mind, and to support your design colleagues.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
