The 2023 Graphic Design Thesis Show celebrates the work of graduating BFA students in the Graphic Design program at New Paltz.
The event brings together current students, alumni, family, friends, local professionals and the entire campus community. Meet and network with current students, faculty and view the thesis projects and portfolios by our talented seniors.
The design thesis is a year-long focused exploration of a design idea or area. Students pursue their ideas and position their investigations relative to conventional and contemporary practice. Students apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout their education to a final project that showcases their creativity and design expertise. In two semesters, students select a topic for their thesis project, develop a proposal, conduct research, and create final design products presented in the senior show. Through this process, students gain experience in critical thinking and visual problem-solving, while also connecting their work to topics that interest them and audiences impacted by the outcomes.
