Today, lille—design is changing and growing.
In order to widen the representativeness of all the design stakeholders and users and to adapt even better to our environment, we are creating 5 representative colleges within our structure governed by the law of 1901 on non-profit organisations.
Join us by becoming a member of our association. You are sure to find a college that suits you!
