GRADUATES

Since 1983, The School of Design has graduated more than 1,700 students in its two-year college level programs and has served more than 10,000 students in its short-course programs. Over the years our graduates, who come from around the world, have shown that a solid training in the area of design, together with an emphasis on industrial development, is an excellent formula for successful professional placement. Many of these young people have come to occupy distinguished positions in the areas of visual arts and design in the United States, Latin America, and Europe, as well as in the Dominican Republic.

The list of graduates is extensive, and their achievements in the fields of fashion, graphic design, fine arts, illustration, and interior design are impressive, as much for their quality as for their quantity. Our graduates have assumed leadership positions in such Dominican and international businesses as Guess, DKNY, The Gap, Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, Reebok, Interior Design Magazine, Anne Klein, Grupo M, McCann Erickson, Listín Diario, and Young & Rubicam. They have also done illustration and design work for People, Ser Padres, and The Village Voice, among other publications.

Graduates of The School have worked as art directors on magazines and newspapers. They have established companies in the world of fashion in which they design uniforms, innovative clothing lines, haute couture, and clothing accessories in general. Some have specialized in product design, and others have won prizes in art biennials and earned prestigious international honors for book illustration and commercial advertising design.
