daOMA

Design Alliance Omaha is a non-profit organization focused on design in all forms. It’s purpose is to keep our design community as a whole, more connected. 

In 10 years Design Alliance Omaha (daOMA) has brought some of the world’s best architects and designers to the city: Michael Bierut, Enrique Norten, Austin Howe, Jeanne Gang, Michael Rock, Yves Behar, Fritz Haeg, Paola Antonelli, Majora Carter, Craig Dykers, Walter Hood, Hani Rashid, Karim Rashid, Linda Loudermilk, Thom Mayne, and Bruce Mau. Inspiring, motivating, challenging, illuminating, and on and on. Here's to the next 10.

Ive been on the board of directors for daOMA since 2007. A graphic designer alongside architects, artists and other designers, Ive been responsible for maintaining the brand and promoting speakers we bring to the city.

I like to think Omaha is in the middle of everywhere, as we bring to our community some of the biggest minds in architecture, graphic design, industrial design and landscape design. My top four so far: Bruce Mau, Majora Carter, Michael Rock and Austin Howe.

As a lean non-profit, weve had some stellar assistance on the design and site development from Jake Welchert, Christopher Kollars and Cody Peterson.
