Coming Up: Middlecott Sketchbattle 2023

Sketchbattle is back, this year at Newlab Detroit on September 14

It’s been a minute since Sketchbattle was held in Detroit, what with Covid-19 restrictions and the switch up from a winter NAIAS to fall. But here we are, currently a week out from this years fight club of design. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Our friends Brook and Judith Banham bring it all with this design based competition, vetting 20 competitors to pump out a completely original concept in 3 – 30 minute elimination rounds. The winner gets some nice swag, and major street cred within our Detroit Design community.

This ain’t their first Rodeo, 2023 Sketchbattle marks #21 for the Middlecott Design team. As always we are honored to be a part of it. We will have our Mobsteel Motorcity Vice Coupe with Brooks 8×8′ split mural as its epic back drop, a mural that helped bring to life our Kicker Boombox and Shoe display in the trunk. I mean, MCV is dripping Brook, Adam, and Steves vision in vapor-wave, check it out on our YouTube series here.
