York University Department of Design Alumni Exhibition at DesignTO Festival 2023

For over two decades the Department of Design at York has emphasized creative and strategic thinking in an interdisciplinary context. It has combined practice, theory and history to educate the design leaders of tomorrow. By offering a comprehensive university experience that addresses the social, cognitive, and technological implications of professional practice, York has graduated some of the top designers working throughout Canada and beyond. While in partnership, the York/Sheridan Program in Design built a global alumni network. York is home to the first baccalaureate design degree on Ontario. This is the first public gathering of alumni projects including print, packaging, motion, interaction design and more!

DesignTO is a non-profit arts organization that curates exhibitions, presentations and educational programming to increase the public’s knowledge and appreciation of design and its role in creating a sustainable, just and joyful world. DesignTO is best known for the DesignTO Festival, Canada’s leading and largest annual design festival that celebrates design as a multidisciplinary form of creative thinking and making, with 100+ exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week every January.
