In 2016, Designmatters celebrated 15 years since its founding at ArtCenter College of Design, coinciding with another significant milestone, the 85th Anniversary celebration of the college. The department marked the Designmatters anniversary with a collective storytelling campaign, conceived by the Designmatters core staff team entitled “15 Years of Designmatters,” which took place throughout the Spring 2016 Term.

The campaign features a pluralism of perspectives and celebrates the achievements and experiences of a few of the students, alumni, faculty, staff, partners, and members of the college’s current leadership who have contributed to shaping the 15-year trajectory of the program.

Many more testimonials and evidence of the depth and breadth of the Designmatters trajectory at ArtCenter and beyond can be found throughout the Designmatters site under projects, first person stories, alumni spotlights, and our student portal.
