Civilla is a Detroit-based design studio dedicated to changing the way our public-serving institutions work. Our team uses design to impact millions of residents in Michigan and influence the nationwide conversation on the social safety net.
A new way forward:
We are on a mission to change the way that change the way our public-serving institutions work. In the United States, we have billions of dollars that flow into services every year without significant changes in the quality of life for residents. At Civilla, we wake up every day asking ourselves: How do we find a new way forward so that the way things are does not become the way things will always be?
At the heart of Civilla is a team that wakes up every day to take action. We are a small community of leaders, designers, storytellers, artists, urbanists, social workers, technologists, and troublemakers who have come together in support of Civilla's mission and purpose. Interested in following along? Find us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. That’s where we share-out daily adventures, new learnings, and upcoming fellowship and residency opportunities.
Our studio is based in Detroit, Michigan where we occupy a 10,000 square foot space in the Techtown building. Our studio is a place of meaning and purpose - where people tackle work that feels bigger than themselves and where they find the ability to do that work alongside others.
