Product Design

A Message from the Chair

On behalf of the faculty and students of Product Design, we welcome you to the virtual Annual Exhibition. Otis Product Design began in 2004 with the belief that creativity in the right hands changes everything and drives design out into the world to make a difference in people’s lives. These pages display some of the extraordinary work of our graduating students and reflect the diversity of their creativity, culture, multidisciplinary skills, and special interests.

The program’s academic approach is to liberate students from conventional vocational boundaries, allowing them to learn deeply from many perspectives. Students explore materials, fabrication, aesthetics, and social engagement, cultivating the intellectual, technical, and business skills to design products across product areas and business sectors that include fashion accessories, furniture and lighting, consumer products, home and office décor, sports, and more to understand global manufacturing, sustainability, and the challenges facing product designers today.

Come and meet these remarkable designers.
