our story


medium (n.)
an agency or a means to do something

Medium was founded in 2015 by 3 AAP students who decided to transform a design publication into a live event. Together, they created RAW Expo, a design exhibition in which students from all across campus showcased their work. The event was a huge hit - 500+ attendees proved that there was an incredible amount of interest in and need for an interdisciplinary design group. From RAW, Medium Design Collective spawned, to become a community of designers who collaborate on innovative projects and serve as a platform and resource for design dialogue.

our mission


To build an interdisciplinary collective of individuals, as a platform for engaging in dialogue and collaboration about design.

guiding
principles

take initiative.
There’s no hand holding here. We celebrate self-starters, those who are brave enough to forge their own paths.
open your mind.
True innovation starts when one sees the world differently from the layman. Opportunities are everywhere, if you observe carefully.
better together.
Through collaboration and peer crits, we benefit from one another’s diverse expertise by seeing in ways we wouldn’t have before.
stay humble.
A designer’s teacher is the user. Assume nothing, and always consider different perspectives.
design & deliver.
It’s more than just ideas, it’s about making it a reality. We hold one another accountable to our commitments and responsibilities.
assume good.
Everyone’s trying their best. Be understanding of one another’s situations and treat each other with kindness.
