The Influence Of Design Cloud

Design Cloud was an interactive design agency, shared workspace and art gallery; home to a select community of designers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs. Design Cloud developed branding and technology solutions for our clients, while providing co-working, an artist residency (MOUNT), and engaging events at our beautiful studio in the West Loop of Chicago. Design Cloud helped independent creatives and small teams follow their dreams.
