Dan Swartz and John Omlor see Design Week Fort Wayne as a perfect opportunity to increase Fort Wayne's creative connections.

  With the help of founding sponsor, Vera Bradley, Britton Marketing + Design, Jennifer Ford Art and other supporters, a full slate of activities is being offered, all "designed" to showcase the creative network that drives the city's economic growth and cultural vibrancy.

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Wunderkammer's Dan Swartz and John Omlor, vice president of Vera Bradley's Brand and Creative, to learn what was on their drawing board.
