Both the prestigious Red Dot and iF rank Umeå Institute of Design (UID) at Umeå University as the best design school in Europe and the world. The school’s premises, in-house and external staff, and its focus on relevant collaborations with companies and the design profession are some of the factors that the school’s students believe are the underlying reasons for their school’s success.
“When you leave Umeå, you not only leave with a wide palette of skills, but also with a great network”, says Rebecca Daum, an Austrian student who is taking her second year of the Master’s programme in Advanced Product Design. “You will find UID alumni in all relevant design agencies and departments all over the world.”
When asked why Umeå Institute of Design have received so many design awards and so much international attention over the years she says:
“The projects we carry out focus on problem areas that matter and are relevant for the people in our time. In addition to that, the university environment provides you with everything you need for a successful project, whether it is facilities or staff.”

Cumulus members were active in New York in May: Aalto University, Art Center, Centro and Les Ateliers with two sister institutions.
A group of 26 students coming from six U.S. and International design universities participated in the 5th WantedDesign.
Design Schools Workshop, working together on ma t e r i a l e x p l o r a t i o n wi t h i n t h e theme “Playtime. ” The workshop, presented with media partner Core77, was conducted this year by Matt Sindall, designer and teacher at the French school ENSCI-Les Ateliers, in conjunction with Oui Design, an initiative from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
Participants were in six collaborative teams, which mix students from different schools and nationalities. A month prior to the workshop, students enter a preparation phase where they communicate via Skype and email to begin working on research and preliminary concepts.” The Workshop space was set up at WantedDesign Brooklyn, allowing the students to work in a creative environment and collaborate with various makers and studios based in Brooklyn, in particular those established at Industry City. The organizers were able to mobilize such mentors and partners, so that the students and teachers were able to work with three different materials: wood, glass, and textile.
