Vancouver Design Week (VDW) is a collaborative platform, a call to action and an invitation to us all to immerse in design and its transformative potential. VDW's city-wide festival connects and celebrates our city's creative capital through a week-long program of design events and experiences. HAO has produced experiences and campaign graphics since 2014 to present.

A city-wide design event is accomplished by an entire community and it's volunteers.

Extensive Planning – The key to an event is through planning and having all possibilities throughout, for example, having a Plan A, Plan B, and sometimes a Plan C.

Rapid Prototyping – Planning can only go so far without iteration and testing. Site visits, communication plans, stakeholder meetings, and countless nights of iteration.

Collaboration  Teaming with people with an open mindset in an environment of constant change and uncertainty alongside communication is key.

Getting sh*t done – There is a defining point where you can reduce risk and have everything planned to get things done.
