Grand Rapids Michigan is host to a vibrant and growing technology community. In 2016, Commercial Progression is proud to announce that we are joining this community with our second Michigan office in downtown Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids is quickly becoming a destination for all things design in Michigan. Since 2009 Art Prize has invited artists from around the world to submit their work for display and judging in downtown Grand Rapids. This event of unprecedented "public experiment" in art appreciation resonates with the region's fixation on design and functional aestheticism. Established design centric firms like Steelcase office furniture are proudly headquartered in the Grand Rapids region.
Web Design Community
We are excited to join the already bustling and productive design community in downtown Grand Rapids. Cowork destinations like The Work Factory are quickly becoming a regular hangout full of like minded web design and development professionals.
Our very own Andrew Blanchard (CP Creative Director) is moving in for the launch of the new Grand Rapids office and he is looking forward to rubbing shoulders with fellow designers. Check out his Behance design portfolio and give him a follow on Twitter, he will almost certainly get you back with a pint at Founders.
Drupal Development Community
Our founding history of leadership with the Michigan Drupal User Group certainly extends to Grand Rapids. Starting in 2016, our on the ground presence will mean an even stronger relationship with the Grand Rapids Drupal community. With the launch of Drupal 8, new development expertise are called for in Symfony programming. Our friends at KNP University have been taking us to Symfony school for years now, and we will be glad to have their training and support in our own back yard.
