Public Design Program Seeking New Clients for Fall 2016

For more than 20 years, ACAD’s Public Design Program has worked with not-for-profit clients from across the province.

Organizations ranging from the Alberta Children’s Hospital, the Canadian Red Cross and the Calgary Board of Education have benefited from the work of a generation of Communication Design students.

Inspired by the practicum project at the School of Visual Arts in New York, ACAD’s Public Design Program pairs fourth-year students from the School of Communication Design with clients who apply to participate, and have been approved by, course instructors.

We are seeking participants for this year’s Public Design Program that pairs not-for-profit organizations with 4th-year design students to gain valuable project work experience.

Clients pay a nominal fee of $500 per student assigned to a project. Projects must be completed during the Fall 2016 semester and can range from websites to posters to advertising, brochures, signage or more.

Interested in applying? Go to and do it today.

Please email Ian Fitzgerald or Mark Kamachi for more information.
