WantedDesign is a platform dedicated to promoting design and fostering the local and international creative community throughout the year. Its two marquee events are held in New York during NYCxDESIGN.

Programs

Since its debut, WantedDesign always had the great ambition to build a unique design destination, where business meets culture. For that reason, its programs were always curated and developed having in mind that anyone in the design community could become involved and learn, meet, discuss, debate.
