Modern Atlanta celebrated their seventh year with the Design is Human Week, held in June 2013, as well as the MA home tour featuring 14 modern homes in the Atlanta metro area and a bonus three homes in North Carolina. The launch party for the event was held at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center in Peachtree Hills and included a design exhibition displaying the latest from design professionals, interior decorators, and furniture firms.

The evening also included a speaker presentation about Ethics in Design by Editor in Chief of Metropolis, Susan S. Szenasy. MA co-founder Elayne DeLeo and Camille Russell Love from the City of Atlanta Cultural Affairs Office, welcomed the gathering and presented the speaker. In her presentation, Szenasy was quick to point out, with the use of three unique examples in design, how modern design has taken on the interpretation of sustainable design and spoke to the Design is Human theme that MA has promoted this year.

Through their unique platform and highly successful annual design week, Design Is Human, they help businesses create winning campaigns and generate positive impressions that guide consumers to strong brands, while brands befriend new markets. Design Is Human accentuates the design process, its human element, and creative excellence.
