November 4 — December 3, 2016
The first (alpha) group of students graduating with Bachelors of Arts in Design presented work from their senior thesis project in the FIDM Museum November 4th through December 3rd. The ten students in this exhibition came from a variety of design disciplines, including Fashion Design, Jewelry Design, Textile Design and Visual Communications. Each of the students developed a thesis proposal and developed their work through a series of Studio courses. Students in this exhibition designed and produced fashion apparel, jewelry, interior product and the concept, graphics and coordination of this event.
The FIDM Bachelors of Arts in Design degree prepares students to think creatively, critically, and divergently about the design process. Students learn to appreciate the universality of design, contextualize design problems, and blend historical and global perspectives with evolving trends as the foundation for inspired design solutions. Students become design innovators by learning to balance conventional design approaches with new, emergent thinking.
