Consultations available by appointment only.


The Design Help Desk offers free advice to all students, faculty and staff at the University of Washington who want to improve their visuals for presentation and publication. Clients can bring any visual work related to their research or teaching—including figures, diagrams, data plots, presentations and posters—and receive help from a designer on staff. Design consultants are graduate students or senior undergraduates in the UW Division of Design from the UW School of Art, Art History and Design.
