“As practitioners, we know that design is a marriage of aesthetics, functionality, intellect, economics, necessity and of course, loads of imagination. Design is transformative. It moves culture and society forward. However, it is something often unappreciated, undervalued and misunderstood by many.
SoFA Design Institute recognizes the need to empower people on the power of design. The college is committed to promoting design as a positive force in the society, economy, and in people’s lives. It is part of our mission to propagate a true appreciation of design to unite, empower and encourage designers, creatives and artists from all walks of life.
One of the ways we aim to do this is through a common battle cry. SoFA has written and produced a short video entitled “A Designer’s Creed”, with the participation of Rajo Laurel, Kenneth Cobonpue and other creative professionals. It is an inspiring statement of what it means to be a designer. Whether you are a design student, design practitioner, or creative professional, we hope to give you a voice, a testament and expression of your convictions as a creative person.”
Founding Partner, SoFA
I love what Amina Aranaz and Loralee Baron-Soong have done with SoFA. I’ve seen it grow from an idea, to a small school and to the design institute that it is now. Today, SoFA is hosting their 2014 Graduation Show at 6pm, Rockwell Tent. Admission is free.
This summer, SoFA continues it’s short programs for kids and teens. Check out the photos from past summers.
Here are the programs offered at SoFA this summer. Sessions start on March 31st, so call soon as slots tend to fill up fast.
