Detroit is one of many cities that was hit hard by the 2008 recession, but the Organization of Black Designers (OBD) is looking to do something about it by boosting spirits with a conference in the Michigan capital for the first time.

The seventh annual DesigNation7: Design To Play is being held in Detroit, according to Crain's Detroit Business, a local business news site. Architectural, graphic, interior and fashion designers are all welcome to attend and share ideas with other professionals in the industry. The conference is being held between October 28 and 31.

"Detroit needs as many boosts to the city as possible," director of global partnerships for OBD, Keir Worthy, told the news source. "This conference can serve as a nexus and conduit for the minority designers of Detroit to reach out."

The conference has workshops on specialties such as architectural design, graphic design and sports fashion design. Panels will also discuss how the industry can help drive and rebuild Detroit's economy.

Graphic design jobs are expected to increase by 13 percent in the next eight years, while fashion design jobs are projected to rise by 1 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Architecture careers are predicted to increase by 16 percent.
