Meet the designers.

Design Bar Detroit is female-owned and fearlessly led by two best friends that met in design school. They immediately found that they had similar styles and complimentary skill sets that pushed one another to become well-rounded and versatile designers.  Each with their own unique areas of specialization, they teamed up to follow a longtime dream of owning their own studio.
