Design Lab

The Design Lab, located in the House Undergraduate Library, is devoted to the teaching and learning of digital design. Open to UNC students, staff or faculty members, the Lab is where you can work on any design project for a class assignment, student organization, or professional/personal development.*

Use the Lab

  • 8 iMacs and 10 PCs equipped with the Adobe Creative Suite and web development software

Get Assistance

Programming
We offer workshops to help you get started on your projects and introduce you to digital design software and concepts.

Consultations
Sign up for a one-on-one meeting to get help on your design project. Our staff can help you learn the software and equipment you need to make your project come alive or re-think the conceptual design of your piece.

For Instructors

Design Lab staff is ready to help instructors incorporate media assignments into new or existing courses. We can work with you to develop assignments to target the desired digital literacies and provide instruction to your students in design principles and software. We have taught classes on:

  • print publication design (brochures, posters, info graphics, etc.)
  • website development
  • presentation design (PowerPoint, Prezi)
