Celebrate Detroit’s unique opportunity as the first and only UNESCO City of Design in the United States at the second annual Detroit City of Design Summit, opening Friday, Sept. 8 at the College for Creative Studies. The event leads up to the seventh annual Detroit Design Festival (DDF), a citywide celebration of design and creativity.
Design is Everywhere. It’s an integral part of our lives, and often goes unnoticed. The most common products and services invisibly integrate themselves into our lives in a helpful, intuitive, and human-centered way. Organizers hope to use design-based approaches to solve some of Detroit’s most pressing issues today as the possibility for Detroit’s residence to live in a sustainable and equitable future can be endless.
