A Detroit Month of Design Sponsorship not only delivers marketing impact, but also aligns brands with the region’s largest design celebration and with Detroit’s UNESCO City of Design initiative. Design Core offers valuable support and guidance to develop a custom program to meet your businesses needs, while expanding Detroit Month of Design’s impact.


A variety of sponsorship packages and programs are available based on a sponsor or funders budget and marketing goals. Sponsors can choose to sponsor the entire festival, a track, specific events, or some combination.

Design Core will work with potential sponsors to develop the right level and types of benefits based on their needs and interests. The higher packages will position sponsor brands in front of the largest audiences. For example, exhibitions, tours and installations tend to attract the most interest. They also are the most visual and engaging.


Sponsor packages primarily vary based on the level and extent of the following benefits:

  • Promotional presence at relevant events that could include; brand activations, digital promotion, onsite signage or visual marketing materials
  • Logo placement on the Design Core website, relevant event pages and printed materials
  • Professional hi-res images of festival attendees engaging with sponsor’s brand
  • Recognition in dedicated email blasts and social media marketing
  • Speaking opportunities
