The deadline for applying to SVA's MFA in Products of Design program is just two weeks away on January 15th, so if you're interested in grad school, you'll want to polish your portfolio and put together application quick. The program teaches every kind of design—from design research, systems design, interaction design, smart objects, and design for social innovation, to branding, service design, sustainability, design strategy, and business design. New offerings include Design for Public Policy, Design for Climate, and Design for Justice.
Chaired by Core77's Allan Chochinov, the program also uses New York City to the fullest. "We teach classes in professional design studios, including Frog Design, IDEO, Johnson&Johnson, Material ConneXion, Blue Ridge Labs, and Argo Design. In addition, we partner every year to design products for MoMA's wholesale catalogue, where the students have tons of opportunities to design products for MoMA (with royalties and their names on the products!). This is the rarest of opportunities." Check out a few of the projects below, and hit their Apply Page before the 15th!
