On March 7th, Melissa Price, CEO of dPOP! talked to us about the importance of reflecting the culture of workers through work spaces and how hidden elements in interior design can achieve that. She also talked to us about the historic preservation and the redesign of dPOP!’s underground vault of the former Dime Building. Price and her team also talked about their creative process, which involves beer, unbridled (horse lamp reference) ideas, and the wonders of brightly colored paint.
dPOP! provided a cereal bar filled with various cereals (some we had forgotten about from our youth!), milks, pop tarts. and, of course, coffee! Afterwards Melissa and her team graciously showed us around their co-working space that they share with Doodle Home and Quicken Loans.
Free tickets are now available here for March 7th CreativeMornings/Detroit!
