Revisions Design Studio

Designed, Created and Fabricated Custom Products

Revisions Design Studio puts emphasis on their collaborative, team inspired, business model. It’s strength rests in it’s ability to bring artists together in a multi-disciplenary studio setting, with the goal being to deliver joy to people with creative and functional products; and while RDS represents creative collaboration, it is the artists behind the studio who implement their skills and talents and who put into practice their mission statement. It is Michele Dugree, Janna Fox and Torrey Dupras who have found a way to utilize their individualized skills and draw what they believe to be a natural interaction between people and products. All Northern Michigan University graduates, the team focuses on bringing limited production products to the market through in-house prototyping and fabrication. Dugree’s degree in ceramic design and her previous interior design experience inspires her love for products big and small. Her experience has also thrust her into a heavy manufacturing role. Moreover, Dugree handles the marketing of all RDS’s products. Fox, who became a full time team member in 2010, boasts the knowledge and chops for cutting edge design and rapid prototype technologies. Her workdays often find her in the ceramics studio or using the laser cutter. And because RDS is truly a collaboration, Dupras brings his concentration in physics, mathematics and computer science to the business, keeping the studio running smoothing by offering solutions to technical problems. His education and knowledge allows 90% of business to be done at the studio. However, these skills also cross over into the creative and environmentally conscious realm, as Dupras enjoys building designs with sustainable materials – a practice they all believe in.

Certainly, this U.P. based studio runs on the skills, talents and passions of the people behind it, but it is these artists’ ability to meld their specialties and work in a team environment that pushes RDS to success. Dugree’s jewelry products and large scale lighting installations, Fox’s design savvy and Dupras’ technical knowledge create the perfect storm of creativity – the nuts and bolts to make this business work. So, at the end of the day, RDS succeeds because its artists have found a common goal in their individualized skills and passions, all while bringing you products to be part of your everyday life.
