About the exhibition

Join the CMU Design Seniors as they celebrate their accomplishments and share their most recent projects! The work featured in the show reflects the unique identity, both of individuals and of the design class.

"Our understanding is that designers create for an external entity. The goal of a designer is often to create functional, meaningful solutions for users within a problem space. A critical view of design might label this relationship as a limitation on personal values and expression. Creating designed solutions could be considered idealistic or even imposing.

We, the Design Class of 2015, would certainly refuse to fit into any rigid definition. We don’t like to play by the rules. We take creative risks. We want to produce beyond convention, beyond the expectations set for us. Our work is both practical and experimental. We are diverse in our interests, and our careers will take divergent paths within and outside of the field of design.

Deliverables, will represent our class as the individualists and free-thinkers that we are. The show’s title acknowledges the constraints of our discipline but visually challenges that notion. The collateral takes what the public expects and transforms it. It alters visual design tropes to incite curiosity and dialogue about what design can be. We proudly highlight our work and we acknowledge how we’ve grown. We use what we’ve learned about form, material and composition in our curriculum to construct a functional, conceptual, communicative, expressive, and most of all, thoughtful public image for our show."
