Welcome to Youngstown Design Works

***Youngstown Design Works will not be in operation over the summer. As of Tuesday, April 14 we will not be taking on any NEW clients until the fall semester begins. To our recently acquired and other current clients, we will still be able to serve you in a limited capacity over the summer.***

Please contact YDW Director RJ Thompson with any questions or concerns. Thank you for all of your kindness towards our students, their education, and your willingness to be a positive part of those experiences.

Youngstown Design Works is an exclusive student-led graphic and interactive design agency that provides creative solutions to Mahoning Valley region non-profit organizations, small businesses, and startup companies. Since April, we have been in our pilot phase completing a project for the Salem Public Library. Over the summer, we enter our second Pilot phase with full implementation of the program set for the Fall 2014 semester.

Youngstown Design Works is an initiative founded in the Department of Art in the College of Creative Arts & Communications at Youngstown State University.
