Detroit Lives

I recently took a trip to my hometown of Detroit, Michigan and while there,  found an amazing source of creative inspiration {I know, I’m as surprised as you are}: the cultural renaissance of downtown.  Innovative art, fashion, greenery, culture, and youth were busy sprouting from the grit and abandoned buildings.

Late in the day, we stumbled across two small boutiques, City Bird and Bureau of Urban Living, both selling wares from local artists and craftsmen.  The most incredible find were goods from the Detroit Lives campaign. A creative force driving and celebrating the re-invention of the city, their amazing city murals and clothing line feature some fabulous typography, aliens, and retro graphics {what more could a girl ask for!}.
