This spring of 2020, nearly 500 students graduated from the School of Design. Each has benefitted from the wisdom and support of faculty, peers, staff, industry partners and the much broader School of Design community.
During this challenging time of the global pandemic, a light of positivity was shown within the design community. School of Design professor Paul Haslip and 17 Graphic Design students created The Pi Project—a special typographic presentation by students from George Brown College’s School of Design celebrating the power of numbers. Pi is an infinite decimal whose value cannot be expressed exactly. An appropriate metaphor for the unstoppable creative powers, passion and focus of the grads and current students of the School of Design.
Project and Creative Director: Professor Paul Haslip, RGD FGDC

Each year, the Graphic Design students in Corporate Design 1 create a series of posters as part of their major branding project. Here, we celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s student designs in the Tasty Design Poster Show.
IN is a retail venture where students, alumni, and faculty develop products for sale and learn about the intersection between design and entrepreneurship. IN provides employment opportunities for students where they develop new skills under the mentorship of experienced faculty and designers. Our vision is to create high quality, locally produced, well designed products and explore customized designs with our clients. IN is a community where students, faculty, industry and the general public come together to celebrate a love of good design, new ideas and collaboration.
Profits from the IN store support student scholarships.
IN is also a mentored studio space. We hire students to work on a variety of design projects for internal clients under staff supervision.
