We know we might sound a touch confident. It isn’t because we’re brash and arrogant, it’s because we’ve had some of the finest students in the game. We’re proud. Our students have won at the Type Director’s Club, Adobe Design Achievement Awards, Creative Quarterly, Graphis, and Communication Arts. We have alumni coast-to-coast and abroad, in all levels and areas of design, working in-house at places like Airbnb, Amazon, Boeing, Disney, Dropbox, Eventbrite, Everlane, Fabletics, Facebook, GLDN, Google, Microsoft, Nike, Nordstrom, Pepsi, Pinterest, REI, and Starbucks, and working in agencies such as Artifact, BASIC, Hornall Anderson, Huge, Instrument, Mentor, Smashing Ideas, Teague, Tether, TenGun Design, Wongdoody, and Ziba. These creative directors, product designers, and industry movers and shakers, are what make us the Department of Design.
