What is DesignLab?

DesignLab is a digital media design consultancy service for students at UW-Madison, located in College Library.  Through one-on-one or small group consultations, we help students work effectively in digital media. We focus on the conceptual, aesthetic, and overall design of media projects for class assignments, student organizations, independent projects, and personal professional development.

DesignLab is funded by the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates and administered by University Libraries.

DesignLab Director Rob Howard and Associate Director Rosemary Bodolay have extensive experience in education and industry. Our TA consultants are drawn from seven academic programs across three colleges and have skills in art, communication, data visualization, design studies, educational media, graphic design, rhetoric, and writing.

Our Annual Report from 2014-15 is available as a pdf.
