In our recent article, ‘How to Grow Your Creative Circle’, we explained the importance of networking. While there are plenty of amazing design groups in Detroit, below are three organizations that can help you get out and connect with Detroit’s creative scene. These organizations host frequent design-themed events and offer membership opportunities as well.

Design Core Detroit

Design Core Detroit aims to empower the creative community through a variety of resources that include educational workshops and business acceleration services.  If you’d like to attend one of their events, check out Design and Dine: Keeping Visual Communication Simple + Impactful

Design Core is also gearing up to host Detroit Month of Design (formerly the Detroit Design Festival) in September. We highly suggest you get out and experience the many events that will take place during the month-long event. It’s a great way to network and explore fresh design concepts.

AIGA Detroit

As the name states, AIGA Detroit is the local chapter of the national AIGA organization. The group provides resources to help you run a professional business as a designer, and works to further the growth of the creative community. We love how AIGA Detroit’s member base contains a vast mix of creative types ranging from illustrators, web designers, and students.

If you have an appreciation for print works, the organization is hosting Road to 150: French Paper Tour in September.
