DescriptionDevelop your eye to see designed objects and messages in the light of the imagination and methods that went into their creation. Deepen your insight into why design matters, and begin to understand its social, cultural, political, economic, and environmental reverberations. Armed with the ability to think critically about every choice you make as a designer, you’ll be in a position to work on creative projects with the power to effect positive change, especially in the realm of sustainability.

As an artist, whether your work forms part of the built environment or belongs to the sphere of visual communication, you’ll find the tools you need to make your vision a reality. Use the metal or wood shops to build 3D prototypes, for example, or use professional equipment for specialty bookbinding or video editing.

More people in Montreal work in creative jobs than anywhere else in the world after London. The city has a vibrant market for locally created products and it’s also a place where sustainability is part of the public conversation, making for a stimulating environment to think about and work in design.
