The World’s 25 Best Design Schools*

Flickr/bluekdesign

As we enter the golden age of design in startups, highly talented user-interface and product designers are becoming ever more important.

Some companies leading the charge are Apple, Path, Pinterest, Square, and Airbnb. What those companies have in common is that design is at the core of their businesses.

But which school is best suited to get you the design job you want?

Over the past couple of months, we conducted a survey to find the top 25 design schools in the world.

All of these schools are comparable in terms of academics, quality of staff, and amazing campuses. But what matters most is how valuable these schools really are.

Of our 633 respondents to the survey, 87.8% said they studied or participated in a college-level design program.

Most of the respondents were either art directors (26.9%) or product designers (30.3%). The vast majority of respondents (76.6%) said skills and knowledge were the most valuable asset their respective design programs offered.

We ranked the schools by a simple metric: What percentage of respondents ranked the schools somewhat valuable, valuable, or extremely valuable?

*We recently added Hong Kong Polytechnic University after one our readers pointed out that we had a duplicate listing.

    Passive design makes the most of the sun; the house is oriented so that specially glazed, high-performance windows face south. With a tight envelope, the house is very well insulated and doesn’t leak heat. However, the most important aspect of successful architecture is always livability, which in this case meant creating a comfortable house that took advantage of landscape views and was sized appropriately.

    A close inspection of the interiors shows iconic modern furnishings in the dining and living areas, which really drive home the point: Although the home’s architecture is linked to New England building traditions, the interior design and use of sustainable materials and methods unabashedly breaks with its past.

    Decoding What People Say – “This house was designed with passive solar principles” means the orientation of the house and the placement of windows have been used to gain heat through natural daylight.
