The Sixth Annual Design Winter Market was a hybrid online and in-person event as part of emerging tradition within the Department of Design at Ohio State. All guests had an opportunity to view and purchase limited-edition – and in several cases unique – products designed and produced by design students.

Winter Market Products were on sale for a limited time on December 6, 2023, and only on-location (from 10 AM-12 PM in front of Hayes Hall on Ohio State's campus). Proceeds from the 2023 Winter Market benefit the student-led Ohio State chapters of Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and Columbus Society of Communicating Arts (CSCA).
