University of Washington and School of Visual Concepts
Workshops are split between two locations:
- University of Washington
- School of Visual Concepts
University of Washington
The University of Washington is one of the world’s preeminent public universities. Our impact on individuals, our region and the world is profound — whether we are launching young people into a boundless future or confronting the grand challenges of our time through undaunted research and scholarship. Ranked No. 14 in the world on the 2018 Academic Ranking of World Universities, the UW educates more than 54,000 students annually. At UW, the interdisciplinary Design-Use-Build (DUB) group is a grassroots alliance of faculty, students, researchers and with industry partners interested in sharing ideas, collaborating on research, and advancing teaching related to the interaction between design, people, and technology.
Founded in 1861, the UW is just north of downtown Seattle, and workshops will take place at selected locations around West Campus, including Alder Hall, Poplar Hall, and the Ethnical Cultural Center. The University District is best accessible by bus, although people interested in walking across the beautiful main campus can also take Sound Transit Link light rail to the University of Washington station.

School of Visual Concepts
Started in 1971 by Dick and Cherry Brown, SVC was a school where the teachers were pros who were actually in the business. And you know what? They still are.
When you come to SVC, you get hands-on experience with people whose hands are still very much on. Our instructors are contributing in a major way at top firms like Hornall Anderson, Microsoft, Starbucks, Possible, POP, and Teague.
And these experts share what they’ve learned working on big-time brands like Google, Facebook, REI, Target, Amazon, and the proverbial many more.
