Join us on Friday April 5th & Saturday April 6th at Morris Library, Guyan Auditorium, and the Pulliam Hall Design Wing for our annual Design Days event. This year's list of speakers includes: Surya Vanka, Authentic Design; Carlos Zamora, Carlos Zamora | Design & Illustration; More speakers to be announced soon.

    Every Spring, the Design Program hosts a student-centered design conference called Design Days. This annual event brings professional designers, both alumni and non-alumni, to campus to share their knowledge and expertise with our design students, faculty, and guests.

    This year’s theme is Layered. Our speakers and conference participants will look at the complexities of making design work and the complexities of being a designer. Balancing personal style and user needs. Balancing profitability with environmental needs, or even the practical side of how all design software users layers.

    We hope to see you here!



    Design Days is a Free event. To help us with catering and seating options, please register at the link below by Wednesday, April 4th.
