In celebration of ten years since Dundee's UNESCO City of Design designation, the University of Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design is hosting an exhibition marking a decade of creative brilliance.

This showcase highlights the exceptional work of students who have since ventured into thriving careers as professional designers. From animation to comics, graphic design to jewellery, metalwork to textiles, the exhibit encapsulates the diverse and innovative spirit of the college's design programs.


Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the world of design from Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 7pm, and on Saturdays from 11am to 4pm. It's a testament to the lasting impact of the college's curriculum and the dedication of its students.

However, an important note for attendees: during weekdays in the vacation period, the Tower Building, where the exhibition is held, may close earlier than expected. To ensure ample time to explore this showcase of creativity, guests are advised to arrive no later than 5pm.


As patrons walk through the exhibition, they'll encounter a captivating array of creations that span the realms of imagination and practicality. From striking illustrations to intricate jewellery, each piece tells a story of talent and innovation nurtured within the halls of Duncan of Jordanstone College.

For those interested in the future of design or simply seeking inspiration, this exhibition promises a glimpse into the evolution and impact of design education in Dundee's vibrant creative landscape.
