This spring, the Center for Design and Material Culture (CDMC) and the Design Studies Department present Design 2021, a virtual edition of SoHE’s annual juried student exhibition. UW–Madison students of all majors are invited to submit their best design work generated through Design Studies courses over the past four semesters (January 2020 through April 2021) for consideration.

All levels of students are encouraged to apply. Feel free to ask your Design Studies professors for advice on what to enter.

Work will be judged on originality, experimentation, craftsmanship, and content. Work will be juried/selected by two design industry judges. The entry window for submissions is from Friday, March 19 – Sunday, April 18, 2021. Each student may submit a maximum of four (4) entries, including group projects/collaborative works. Selected work will be curated into an online exhibition at the end of the semester and hosted here on the CDMC website.
