Design Alumni Event in Seattle

Design students and alumni gather in Seattle

Hundreds of alumni gathered in Seattle on Saturday, April 6 for an evening of networking and socializing. Graduates of the combined programs of Graphic Design and Visual Communication Education spent an evening reminiscing with old classmates and making new connections. Attendees were also able to talk with alumni in New York City through a simulcasting station.

While dominated by Seattle alumni, attendees also included graduates from New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland and Spokane. The crowd included recent alumni as well as individuals from five decades dating back to the '70s.

The inaugural Department of Design event was possible through funding from the College of Fine and Performing Arts and generous donation partnerships with Boundary Bay Brewing and Walton Beverage.
