About DAAPX

DAAPX is a celebration of alumni accomplishments and a Ted-talk style showcase of diverse projects representing all DAAP majors and degrees. Developed in 2018, the DAAP Alumni Council wanted to create a platform for alumni to share a pivotal project in their careers to fellow alumni, faculty, students and the creative community.

Each year, alumni submit proposals on experiential design and the power the creative fields have to impact the human experience. Each quick 10-minute presentation gives a glimpse of a project from start to finish leaving the audience inspired.
