Mix & Mingle was our first holiday party at Rise & Design, and we couldn't have asked for a better shindig! Attendees drove from Wheeling, Cleveland, and Indy to imbibe the holiday spirits and make merry with us all evening.

We are constantly humbled and excited about the creative community that we are building here in Columbus. Rise & Design could not be as awesome as it is without all of your time, hearts and ears. This holiday bash was really just a way to celebrate this incredible year that we've had and all of the inspirational people that we have all met.


We strung festive lights and hung bunting with care, Yao's husband Eric was kind enough to bartend for us and our 50+ closest friends. Everyone brought cookies or snacks to share and stayed late into the cold December night. Beyond entertaining old friends, a handful of people came to meet up and feel out the vibe. We couldn't be more grateful. 


Many thanks to all of you that baked, supported, bought gift packs, and brought your experience and wisdom to our events in 2017. And a HUGE thanks to Christa Kimble Photography for capturing this event.

We are looking forward to another fantastic year with Rise & Design. Join us for our January meet-up to kick off this year right!
