When you think about design, what American cities come to mind? New York? Chicago? San Francisco? How about Detroit? That’s right - Detroit ranks right up there among North America’s leading design cities. The Motor City is actually home to many top design-driven industries, world-class educational facilities and the country’s highest concentrations of industrial and commercial designers.
