Alumni are found as close as Bellingham and as far away as New York. Seattle has been a key market for Western Alumni over the years. Boeing, Bon-Macy's, Eddie Bauer, Microsoft, Nike, Nordstrom, K2, Tether, REI and Starbucks are just a few of the firms that have employed Western graduates as in-house designers.

Nationally recognized design and advertising firms such as Landor, Chiat-Day, Oglivy-Mather, and The New York Times have also hired our graduates. Alumni from the Design Program secure careers on the west coast but are scattered across the United States as well. Some of them also pursue graduate studies in advanced institutions around the country and abroad.
