Junior Student Kyle Rice Heads to Vogue
Design covers many different facets in many different industries, fashion not being a stranger to that notion. Student Kyle Rice, being intrigued with the integration of design through fashion hit the road to Vogue, thanks to Faculty Tim Powers.
Kyle Rice — “Fashion has always been a part of what informs my design work, often looking towards the culture that surrounds urban fashion choices and how it shapes the industry. I was lucky to have the opportunity to see this first hand; how design is not just a supporting element, but a large part of what the world sees and how design shapes the perception of brands.”
Excellence times three
Congratulations to Jen Bancino, Natalie Dixon, and McKenna McIntyre who won the College of Business Student Excellence Award. These design seniors were recognized for their hard work, drive and ambitious personalities in the College of Business over the past four years.
"Receiving the Student Excellence Award for the College of Business was such an honor and humbling experience. It fuels me to get out in the real world to show them what a Ferris Design Degree from the College of Business looks like! It was my honor and privilege to stand before the College of Business faculty to represent our design program by receiving the student excellence award with two of my other very talented classmates."
"The design program at Ferris prepared me for the industry tools, real clients, and the confidence to articulate the work to others."

how our program works
Throughout our program students are taught to use a 5 phase process. This guides the students to explore multiple ideas to find the best solution. The process includes multiple steps within each phase, however on a project to project basis, things can adjust, because we know in life not every project is the same.
