MISSION STATEMENT The Chicago Design Museum strives to unite, inform, and inspire. As a resource for the design community and beyond, the museum facilitates an open dialogue about contemporary and historical design through limited-engagement exhibitions, events, public programs, and digital media. We are an adaptable and non-traditional organization that celebrates and shares design.
Tanner Woodford is the co-founder and executive director of the Chicago Design Museum, an adaptable and non-traditional organization that aims to unite, inform, and inspire. Throughout the last decade, Tanner has worked as a product designer, community organizer, and an interaction designer. In addition to freelance web and graphic design, he has taught and lectured on design history, rapid ideation, and personal experience. He would like to continue to do so.
