A group of local design industry professionals are collaborating to assemble a series of events for the first-ever West Michigan Design Week.

Given the depth of design talent throughout the region, local organizers aim to showcase the various disciplines of design work from both firms and individuals.

Despite the reticence of the region’s conservative corporate culture to brag about its capabilities, the planners behind West Michigan Design Week want to do just that with a loosely affiliated series of events from May 5-10. Their plan is modeled off other Design Week programs in creative hubs around the country including Portland, San Francisco and New York.
