Designing Us: 826michigan Thanks Its Designers

July 10, 2013 | 826 Blog Post

bluegreen webAt 826michigan, we value great design. We also value great designers. It’s the Month of the Designer and we’re saying thank you to our design volunteers!

Over the last eight years, volunteer designers have touched every aspect of our work here at 826michigan, from the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair to our many publications to fundraising events to volunteer recruitment materials.

We are extraordinarily grateful to the dozens of people who have donated their time and their skill to help us further our mission and serve 2,500 students aged 6-18 with free creative writing and tutoring programs.

Please see below for an as-complete-as-we-could-possibly-get-it* list of the designers who have volunteered with 826michigan in the past eight years.
