2019 Annual Creative Technology and Design Exhibition: #DESIGN — Closes
December 14, 2019
November 19–December 14, 2019
Gallery FIT, The Museum at FIT
Pomerantz Center Lobby
We are living through a fundamental workforce transformation during which digital technology has begun to alter the skills companies are searching for. Inspired by President Joyce F. Brown’s Workforce of the Future initiative, FIT’s Advertising and Digital Design BFA, Creative Technology and Design (CT&D) subject area, and Center for Continuing and Professional Studies worked closely with our industry partners to create a series of specialized credit courses and noncredit certificate programs that are career-driven and forward-thinking. In addition, CT&D also initiated a wide range of guided experiential learning (GEL) projects and career development events in collaboration with some of the most well-known companies and brands in the world.
To celebrate the eight-year anniversary of the CT&D subject area, this year’s annual exhibition, #DESIGN, showcases some of the most exciting industry collaboration projects and award-winning design projects. CT&D’s mission is to initiate a transformative journey for creatives worldwide so they can enter some of the most rewarding careers in the age of digital media. We believe designers are innovators, activists, and visionaries, and our goal is to nurture the next generation creative workforce that will design digital content, products, platforms, experiences, and other solutions that leverage technology to solve business problems and to improve people’s lives. We believe the year of 2020 will be the beginning of an exciting new phase of our Creative Workforce of the Future initiative.
The exhibition is co-curated by professors C.J. Yeh and Christie Shin.
#DESIGN is on display in Gallery FIT, located in The Museum at FIT, and in the lobby of the Pomerantz Center.
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
