Alumni of the School of Design

The DES Alumni Committee is dedicated to connecting with and activating past graduates from the School of Design (Previously Design and Industry).

We are an independent group of alumni volunteers providing a forum for the creation of a community of designers and a platform for engagement with the school and current students. We encourage all alumni to join and partner with us to receive exciting news and invitations to events happening at the School. We also want to know what you are doing and hear about your successes so that we can celebrate your successes.

We look forward to hearing from you!
