The Struktur Event creative conference was co founded by Michelle Rose and Sam Ward, design leaders from the performance apparel and interactive design industries. Together with the most dedicated team of leaders, advisors, sponsors, and volunteers, the Struktur team has been building a connected, supportive, innovative, and fun environment for creatives since 2013. The 2021 Struktur team is focused on bringing this incredible community online to keep us connected and help us usher in a new era.


Struktur Event was co founded in 2013 by Michelle Rose, designer, musician, martial artist and connector of creative minds.  Michelle spent the past 20 years leading creative teams and designing key outerwear and sportswear for the largest outdoor companies in the industry. With millions of her styles sold around the globe, if you’ve ever purchased jackets from Columbia Sportswear or The North Face, it is likely you have one her pieces in your closet…still.

Following her passion to lead and encourage others in creative development, Michelle started Struktur Event, the first creative conference for the professional design community of the active, outdoor, and urban industries. She is currently the founder of Struktur Society, a community for creators in design, art and music that includes creative conferences (Struktur Event), podcasts and online events (Struktur Series), digital content and newsletter (Struktur•ed), and design collaboration and consultation (Struktur Koncept).
