As a business focused on providing unique and creative solutions for all of our clients, ParsonsKellogg values high-quality design. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with DESIGN WEEK RI this September in support of the Rhode Island design community!
DESIGN WEEK RI is a celebration of design in Rhode Island, ParsonsKellogg’s home state since going into business over 15 years ago. As the smallest state in the US, Rhode Island actually has the 3rd largest percentage of creative sector jobs in the country, after New York and California, making it a hotbed for design and innovative change. DESIGNxRI, the nonprofit hosting organization for DESIGN WEEK RI, works to create an opportunity-driven environment for RI designers, design businesses and the design sector.
DESIGN WEEK RI is the nonprofit’s cornerstone event, and ensures Rhode Islanders are part of the conversation as design grows nationally as an important driver for economic change and innovation. The “week” consists of 11 Days of Design across Rhode Island – from parties and tours to conferences, speaker panels, and morning coffee chats.
ParsonsKellogg is a key sponsor of the showcase and provided printed t-shirts for staff and volunteers for the duration of the event. We’ll also have a presence at each of the Morning Talks, where you’ll find our signature Adirondack chairs and attendees can chat with PK employee volunteers.
Sponsoring DESIGN WEEK RI is a natural fit for PK. In a small state like Rhode Island, it’s rewarding to be part of a close-knit small business community and see local efforts flourish. We hope that this partnership will be just another way we can give back to our neighbors.
