Serious Play

Design has impact. It has influence, it has reach, it creates communities. Design gives voice to a cause. More than that, design has purpose. This is ours.

The Senior class of 2022 had fun and played seriously hard to create our capstone projects. A colorful, joyful, and nostalgic mix of concepts, we’re excited to share them with friends, family, and future employers. PLAY creates a safe space to take risks; SERIOUS intentions allow us as designers to go beyond fun to find our flow. 

Whether it’s playing in our creative process, playing with games, or playing together, our purpose is Serious Play, and we’re here to be serious players.
