Behind Our Doors: A Step Inside Sharklion Studios

We draw the majority of our design inspiration from Detroit's varied architecture, but also from the surrounding creative community we have grown to know. Therefore, we believe it's a good thing to share ideas (& spaces!), foster friendships & inspire one another, continuously.   

We have been in this industrial loft, located in the Milwaukee Junction area of Detroit, for the last few years refining our craft. In this space, Sharklion eyewear has been built from the ground up.

Here's a small peek behind the doors of Sharklion from this past Friday's evening studio grind.

Drinks X Design: City of Design Celebration


Detroit has recently been named a UNESCO “City of Design” - the first metropolis in the United States to receive the robust creative & cultural achievement.

This world-wide honor was celebrated by the Detroit Creative Corridor Center’s (DC3) Drinks x Design event held this evening in the form of a design crawl starting at One Woodward (Quicken Loans) and advancing to the Penobscot Building (Lunar North) & the Dime Building (dPOP).

We were fortunate enough to attend, submerging ourselves in the influential surrounding architecture, creative attendees & featured local design companies. 

Make sure not to miss the upcoming Detroit Design Festival, as well as more Drinks x Design events held monthly in Detroit!

Support local & celebrate good design - always.

The Editorial Work of Jesse David Green

Local photographer, Jesse David Green, stopped by this past weekend to visit our Detroit studio. Jesse has been touring local makers and divulging into their craft with his recent editorial work. His visual storytelling is unparalleled. We are both amazed & humbled.
