The Topic: Experiential Design

As designers and artists, we recognize that all our work is created for and influences or impacts people. Back in the fall, we accepted proposals for presentations to tell a story about a project that was designed with the experience for an individual or group of people in mind – Public art installation? Product design? Environmental graphics? We wanted ‘em all! This is your opportunity to see select presentations that are centered on the human experience.

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.

DAAPX 2022

We invite you to enjoy last year's DAAPX presentations. Ten notable DAAP alumni spoke on a range of compelling topics from gender expression to improving the criminal justice system and environmental sustainability. Each talk can be viewed in its entirety within the "2022 Presenters" tab below.
