Montclair Design Week (MDW) announces the launch of the town of Montclair’s official celebration of design: an annual event that will connect and engage the Montclair, NJ community in a week of thought-provoking, playful, and inclusive events that celebrate how design enriches our lives in ways both large and small.
From October 20 through October 28, a diverse program of lively talks, studio crawls, workshops, films, festivities, and design challenges will take place in venues all across the town. MDW’s mission is to celebrate and mobilize Montclair as a design force for good through the power of curiosity, innovation, and engagement. Sponsors in year one include West of Hudson Realty Group (Title Sponsor), Montclair State University’s Feliciano Center of Entrepreneurship, Farrow & Ball Paint, and Ironbound Hard Cider.
“Montclair Design Week was born out of a curiosity to inspire and activate community engagement by believing that we are all designers of a better, bolder future,” said Petia Morozov, MDW’s founder. “Our town is filled with creative, innovative people of all ages, backgrounds, professions and points of view, with so much to contribute and celebrate.”
Registration opens today for individual events, most of which are free and accessible to the public. Please check www.montclairdesignweek.org regularly for updates as we are always adding new opportunities for involvement.

The Year of Messy Design
2018, MDW’s first year, debuts under the theme “The Year of Messy Design,” a fun and welcoming way to include everyone from professional designers to community members from all walks of life. “We expect our inaugural to be one big, beautiful, spectacular mess full of wonderful surprises,” said Morozov. “It will take us all year to really understand what kind of design week we can be. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Designing with community, and not just for community requires us to embrace the mess!”
