Committed to building design knowledge with faculty research

At IIT Institute of Design, every full-time faculty member has a range of research interests. We explore design thinking in business contexts. We dissect the visual language of data visualizations. We consider interactive place-making and persuasive tech. We apply our ideas to global companies in local markets, design for the base of the pyramid, schools in the digital age, social entrepreneurship, and health care systems.

ID is a place for hybrid thinkers who see beyond the traditional boundaries of their discipline. It’s our integration that allows us to tackle some of today’s most difficult problems.
