Princeton University Graphic Design Conference

We are proud to present Story: The Designer’s Personal Narrative, the fifth-annual Princeton Graphic Design Conference. Through this conference, we will bring together professional designers and university students to think critically about the function of self-expression in design.

All conference activities will take place in McCormick Hall, adjacent to the University Art Museum on the Princeton University campus, unless otherwise indicated. Please see the travel page for directions to the conference venue.
