Color & Materials Design

The Color & Materials Design MFA Program prepares students for a career in Color, Materials, and Finish (CMF) Design.

The curriculum invites students to discover new and innovative color and material research to create meaning between products and experiences and their user or audience. 毕业s of the College’s MFA program in Color & Materials Design program work in both physical and digital spaces to advance ideas through color and materials innovation, technology, and storytelling.

In the dafabet888 Color & Materials Design program, students explore the latest advances in materials, and their color and finish applications, through hands-on experimentation and use of state-of-the-art prototyping facilities. 我们ing this knowledge to solve design problems, students collaborate within the design team structure to develop narratives that offer creative concept and design executions. As they learn how to look for patterns—in markets, cultures and geographic regions—they gain insight into consumer behaviors.
