Otis grads are professional artists and designers who have made outstanding contributions to the creative culture for almost 100 years. They demonstrate the spirit of experimentation that Otis has imbued in its students.

Some work in disciplines related to their area of study, expanding the boundaries of their creative practice; others leap imaginatively across vocational borders. From museum and exhibition design to the Hollywood screen, from the clothes we wear to the toys with which our children play, alumni shape the world.
