Not only do designers study cultural devices to communicate, designers are culture makers. We create artifacts that express humanity to make the world a better place.

This project was founded by Carrie A. Dyer in 2014, Design Educator, as a professional collaborative extension of the classroom for students. Distinguished Collaborating Educators include Janis Dougherty & Cory Gurley.
