Celebrated Graphic Designers and Artists to Converge for the 4th annual Design Week 2014

Design Week, June 15–21, 2014

A core component of Otis’ MFA Program, Design Week introduces students to the international design community. 

Design Week is a profound experience for students to engage with designers and other students who introduce diverse perspectives and new ways of thinking and practicing in a global world. This transformative experience shapes the culture of the department and confirms that collaboration, risk taking, and relationship building are the foundational elements of a successful practice.

Students from other institutions are welcome to participate during the week. Select schools include: Sint Lucas - Gent, Sint Lucas - Antwerp, Cal Arts, and Lucerne School of Graphic Design.

This year, Otis welcomed six recognized graphic design studios from four countries who hosted workshops over the course of the week and gave one-collective public lecture.
