Meet the faculty + staff

We are seven full-time, tenure and tenure-track faculty, each a highly skilled design and creative professional, with knack and know-how spanning to every corner of the industry—from visual design, typography, branding, and illustration, to UX, motion, EGD, and packaging. Beyond our professional chops, we are tireless in our students’ pursuit of a prestigious, challenging, and engaging educational experience. We ground our instruction in the iterative process and basics of strong design principles and solid typography, and then push our students to be more experimental, more daring in their work.

Our ranks also boast another dozen adjunct instructors, hand-picked and curated to fit the vision we have for our program. They partner with us to supplement and enhance the department, and each bring their own expertise to an already robust roster. While the faculty put in a lot of face time with design students, behind the scenes, the program is kept humming like a well-oiled machine by a team of rock stars.
