DESIGN YOUR LIFE.

More than providing a foundation in design studies, the Integrated Design program at the Haliburton School of Art + Design is a ‘prep school’ for a life in design, and for life itself.

Taking part in the Toronto Design Offsite (TODO) Festival is just one of the many innovative, real-world design experiences offered to students in the program. Their window installation at *QueenSpecific Gallery, Regarding Stuff, evolved from thinking about “stuff”—particularly the stuff that we design, produce, consume, and throw away at an alarming rate. It weighs heavily on their collective unconscious. In the end, however, they acknowledge that as human beings we can all be reduced to skin and bones. Students have taken the human skeletal system as inspiration for their design experiments and prototypes.

The program, and design projects like this, teach students to dream, communicate, collaborate, experiment and ultimately apply the knowledge and skills they develop to become thinking and caring designers of the 21st century.

The exhibition runs from January 19 to February 28, 2017 at *QueenSpecific Gallery, 787 Queen Street West, Toronto.
