Bucky Willis

Bleeding Heart Design
Founder and Director
A native of Detroit, MI, Bucky Willis received her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Detroit Mercy. She is currently a project manager and designer at the Detroit Collaborative Design Center and has taught Architectural Design Studio as an adjunct professor. The heart of her career and research lies at the intersection where architecture and design meet social issues and emotional impact. This career and research focus inspired her to create the concept of Bleeding Heart Design - a design movement and non-profit that inspires love and altruism. Designers who seek to improve humanity and solve social issues through design are who Bucky likes to call "design superheroes"!
