By Design 

“Design” is a word with a multitude of meanings. As both a noun and a verb, it can be descriptive and active. It can refer to plans, drawings, renderings and spaces, as well as processes, movements and performances. Design can be visual or intellectual—or both. Design can be big like a building or little like a logo. It can be light or dark, quiet or loud, public or private. And Dickinsonians design through a multitude of mediums. They are writers, developers, costumers, choreographers and stylists. They are illustrators, architects, artisans and engineers. They are infusing their aesthetic in an array of professional arenas, and they are often behind the scenes.

We’d like to introduce you to six of these inventive alumni and show you the impact of their designs.
