In honor of Detroit’s designation of the first and only City of Design in the United States, DDF programming and events will explore the various ways design is shaping the way we live and work. From the workplace to the built environment, thoughtful design can impact and even change the way we experience the world around us. The 2017 Detroit Design Festival wants to show how design in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and the products and services we use everyday can impact the way society functions and the way people experience the world around them.
