About DesignHub

15 Years and Counting

Karen Ragland and Ted Chesky founded DesignHub in 1999 after having worked together at an Ann Arbor design firm. Chris Kochmanski joined Karen and Ted as a DesignHub partner in 2002. We’ve since added Jason West and Ryan Sexton to our team of professionals. And we continue to work with some of the area’s best freelance talent.


This is DesignHub’s 15th year serving clients in Ann Arbor, Saline, and other communities near and far. We’ve shown that we can not only survive, but even thrive, in a competitive market through a period of economic uncertainty.

Looking ahead, we’re confident of steady growth for our firm, and of helping more organizations build their own successful futures. In short: We’re in this for the long haul, and we’d be pleased to now explore the possibilities for how we can serve you.
