Our Design Graduates

The Future of Design

Design has never been in greater demand. Businesses, government and local communities are turning to designers and artists for innovation and problem solving, creating new opportunities in every sector of the economy for artists, designers, graduates and architects. The demand for our graduates is increasing, and each year, many receive offers of employment prior to graduation, while others go on to pursue graduate education.

Graduates are building exciting design careers, working on such projects as:

  • Arlington National Cemetery Millennium Expansion;
  • Johns Hopkins University Master Plan;
  • Yichang Three Gorges Resort;
  • Motion graphics for Rio 2016 Olympics and Super Bowl 50;
  • Applications for Apple Watch;
  • Daktronics;
  • Minnesota Institute of Art exhibits and
  • Sotheby’s Fine Art Auctions.

Still, other graduates become art educators and designers who establish their own firms or develop viable product and service concepts. Currently, interior design students are working with KUDO kids to take their early education furniture concepts from classroom to market.

The School of Design programs aims to provide graduates with an understanding of current issues and the ability to work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams, which is fundamental to addressing the world’s global needs. SDSU graduates have always been qualified to secure leadership positions. The School of Design creates exciting pathways to ensure that SDSU remains competitive in educating tomorrow’s design leaders.
