Willoughby was instrumental in founding KC Design Week in 2010 to foster appreciation for and engage the community in architecture, graphic, industrial, interior and landscape design innovation. Speakers and artists from across the country come to town to show, tell and inspire. A fresh creative approach to theme and support materials is taken each year to highlight the work of designers and design firms in and around the Kansas City area. It’s a fantastic way for creative people from all across the region to gather together, learn from each other and get a jolt of creativity.

KCDW asked Willoughby to brand the event for Spring 2020 and it was all ready to go but well, you know. So we gave it a little update and rolled it out for the Fall of 2021. Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.
