You are looking at the new Design Corps web site, long planned and sweated over. Designed by David and Michael, built by This Looks Nice and funded by a Sappi Ideas That Matter Grant, the new site is intended to not only display the work of outstanding students and non-profits, but to streamline the application process for all interested parties. We hope you enjoy the show.

Design Corps was named as one of 27 recipients of a Sappi Ideas That Matter Grant. The $15,000 award will fund an identity and graphic presence for Design Corps, to include business papers, a brochure, advertising and a web site, as well as photo documentation of the class. 

Since 1999, Sappi has been awarding the grants "to recognize and support designers who generously donate their time and talent to a wide range of charitable activities." 

Design Corps alumnus Rob Hersey saw his work unveiled at a ceremony on the grounds of Brooklyn Children's Center in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The large gate sign, designed by Hersey and Design Corps classmate Suraj Gandhi is part of a larger system designed by the team in Fall 2008.

Chiefgood partnered with Design Corps on The Chiefgood Project, where students collaborate directly with the charities to create compelling digital ad campaigns. 

The mission of The Chiefgood Project is to give graphic design students valuable professional experience, while providing charities with much needed exposure. Students create campaigns that transform charities’ passion and dedication to solving social problems, into messages with impact.
