Hear Us Out

In the spring of 2004 a by-invitation-only group of elite graphic design students began working together outside of class on real-world projects for professional clients. In the fall of the same year, the group evolved into the reinstated upper level graphic design course, STA 494, while retaining its selective nature as a group of advanced students. Each year, students who exemplify the creativity, dedication and professionalism of the Graphic Design Program at Michigan State University are individually selected by faculty to join the Design Center team.

Guided by Chris Corneal, Associate Professor of Graphic Design in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design, the group has had the opportunity to work with real-world clients, both from within the University and from without, in a professional context. From logos to packaging, from brochures to websites, Design Center has worked on a variety of projects, each completed with the goals, and personalities of each individual client in mind.
