This year, Designer Fund is hosting three Bridge programs that focus on different design disciplines: Product Design, Product & Communication Design, and Design Management. We’re excited to announce the 2017 Product Design Bridge Fellows, a select group of exceptional designers who represent the next generation of design leaders.
This year’s Fellows were chosen from nearly 1,000 applicants. They each bring unique experiences, strengths, and diverse backgrounds to the group — 50% are women, 17 studied art or design in school, and 4 have graduate degrees in design. On average, the cohort has 5.5 years of professional design experience. We’re thrilled to welcome these 26 Fellows into our community.
Applications for our next Bridge Program, Product & Communication Design, are open now until May 23rd. Apply directly here:
Bridge is for both experienced designers looking for new job opportunities and designers who want to grow as leaders at their current role. Learn more about how to become a Bridge Fellow here and in the FAQ.
