A million congratulations to both Michelle and Nilda and PHI DESIGN GROUP for being named to BizBash's Top 35 Event Designers! The list, appearing in the spring issue, features an incredibly talented group of designers in the country who have participated in everything from White House dinners to even SXSW. Also featured is PHI DESIGN GROUP's design for the Quebec Bipharmaceutical Meeting, which showcases the bar, an homage to Montreal's Kino Guerin, a furniture builder and sculptor, and for PHI DESIGN GROUP's unique speciality of custom installation pieces.
They were also listed in the previous year's Event Innovators of 2012 and you can listen to the two of them talk about what it's like to design together here.
