What To Expect

BFA
in Design

At Cornish Design, we believe that design can make the world better. It’s really that simple. Design can get people communicating, make truth clear, make operations seamless, clarify and control communication, make us more human. We value various approaches to making those things happen– there’s not just one “right answer” for us. We emphasize both digital comfort and analog craft, and ground both in rigorous conceptual thinking.
