Faculty

ID to MD, Dirt to Fork, Buenos Aires to Bertie County. Our faculty crosses disciplines, industries, and continents, a gathering of the most eclectic and creative designers in the working world. They are no strangers to breaking and remaking the rules, bridging gaps, translating, and making space for the new.
