-

Design in Design is a student-run graphic design organization at the University of Toronto.

We produce work for student clubs at U of T (internal clients) and collaborate with organizations unaffiliated with the university (external clients) to effectively communicate their brand through logos, banners, posters, and other graphic works. We do not offer web development or video production services at this time.

We give students the opportunity to build practical experiences in design and marketing, in an industry where exploitative practices such as unpaid internships are otherwise commonplace. We are an organization that thrives on the diversity of our team, fostering the growth and advancement of each member’s work and skills.

Design in Design is a non-profit organization that accepts contributions on a voluntary basis.
