What We Do

Scope The ProjectFree Help for Students

For UW-Madison Students, we offer free one-on-one digital media design consultations. Make an appointment or drop-in and our consultants will help you turn an assignment into a finished project. We can help with everything from making an awesome presentation or video for a class, to designing a logo for your student organization or helping you layout your resume. 


Design The Experience


Design your Project

At the beginning stage, bring in your assignment and ideas, and we can help you develop creative concepts to realize them. We can help you design the right experience for your audience: are you trying to prove an argument? explain a process? persuade someone to act? express a new idea or insight? DesignLab consultants can help with project planning, finding resources, and helping you understand issues of copyright and fair use.

Make The Media


Make Media

DesignLab can advise on software selection, connect you with software training and suggest equipment. Just across the room, you can check out a range of media equipment from College Library's CMC Help Desk. When you've finished your project our consultants can give feedback and help you plan to archive or share it
