Visitors to can learn more about the one-year graduate program and reserve a spot at the upcoming MPS Branding Department open house, taking place on Saturday, November 7, 2 – 4pm, at 136 West 21st Street.


In addition, Department Chair Debbie Millman has added two more prominent names to the program’s faculty: Sem Devillart, a noted futurist and member of the trend-scouting consultancy CScout; and Scott Lerman, who founded Lucid Brands after having led two of the world’s leading brand consultancies, Siegel & Gale and Enterprise IG.
