As business students in a design studio, Michael & I have learned so much about the design culture, and how it differs, yet complements a typical business culture. A designer’s attention to detail often goes unnoticed, but now, having the chance to work with the design students for a semester, I feel as though I am better able to recognize and appreciate extreme attention to detail. This was a valuable lesson to learn personally, but is also a big step in building the bridge between the business and design world, particularly at Lawrence Tech. I am so grateful for the lessons that I have learned as a part of the detroitSHOP studio, and have also appreciated the opportunity to spend so much time downtown. It is an experience that I will always remember, and is something that I hope to see students pursue further at Lawrence Tech in the future.
