Who is UCO Design?
UCO Design is our student body, and they're AWESOME! They win lots of awards, they're involved in not only the local Design community through AIGA & SIDA, but also through the general community – several of our students have been awarded grants for their "design for good" projects. For example, alumnus Julia Radke was awarded a $25,000 Sappi Ideas That Matter Grant for AdoptUgly, which started out as a Package Design project! Keep scrolling to see what we're up to.
