Kirksey kicked off a full month of design awareness and the future of design;  everything from virtual reality to flying drones. June 1st kicked off Kirksey’s “Design Month,” a firm-wide initiative to inspire, promote and reinforce Kirksey design and new design initiatives. This year’s theme is “What’s Your Story?” – hitting on the concept that good design, especially architectural design, should tell a story and evoke feeling, no matter the medium. Through a series of design activities, Kirksey is proud to feature a full month of anything and everything design – from hosting happy hours where employees can try virtual reality headsets, watch 3-D printers in action, to presenting “Design Talk” firm-wide lunches on topics of design sustainability and the future of design.

Follow along with us this month for more design-related fun, and enjoy seeing the world through the eyes of Kirksey design.
