“The State of Design” Film Premiere

Michigan is full of world class designers who have chosen to live and work here. Not only do they support their businesses and improve Michigan’s economy, they improve the lives of all Michigan citizens through their proactive community involvement. We need to tell their stories.

This short format documentary series features three Michigan designers and intimately focuses on their personal lives, their struggles, their achievements, and highlights how Michigan is the ideal place for them to thrive as innovators. “The State of Design” showcases Michigan’s design talent while promoting design as a fantastic career choice to the education community.
