DesignCorps

DesignCorps is a collective of graduate students from the Corcoran College of Art and Design who will review, accept, and implement proposals for client-based design projects with the supervision of professional design faculty. Originating in the Master of Arts in Exhibition Design program, DesignCorps takes on 3-dimensional, narrative, and environmental design projects such as exhibitions, installations, interior designs, and pop-up experiences for clients in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. In the spirit of multi-disciplinary and collaborative design-thinking, DesignCorps includes students from all five graduate programs at the Corcoran College of Art and Design: Interior Design, New Media Photojournalism, Art and the Book, Art Education, and Exhibition Design.
