  • Public-Library is a cross-disciplinary design studio in Los Angeles. They construct identities, concepts and experiences for brands through the practice of reduction using fundamental typographic theory and experimentation with space and form.

    Ramón Coronado and Marshall Rake met as design students at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After studying, working, and exhibiting independently for many years—both stateside and internationally—their design philosophy and approach brought them back together as Public-Library in 2011.

How to Develop an Institutional Partnership

HOW TO DEVELOP AN  INSTITUTIONAL PARTNERSHIP

An Institutional Partnership is the exchange of students between an Otis Department and a similar department/faculty at a partner Institution.  Exchanges generally focus on a specific discipline and frequently restrict participation to students in that department. To develop a partnership:

 

OTIS DEPARTMENTS

Step 1: Contact a Department at the Institution you would like to develop a partnership with.

Step 2: Both you and the partner institution need to complete the Institutional Partnership Exchange Proposal

Step 3: Submit the completed proposal to the Center for International Education. The proposal will be reviewed by the International Education Steering Committee

Step 4: Upon approval, a Memorandum of Understanding will be issued and signed by both institutions.

 

Outside Institutions

Step 1: Contact an Otis Department you would like to develop a partnership with.

Step 2: Both you and the Otis Department Chair need to complete the Institutional Partnership Exchange Proposal

Step 3: The Otis Department Chair will submit the completed proposal to the Center for International Education. The proposal will be reviewed by the International Education Steering Committee

Step 4: Upon approval, a Memorandum of Understanding will be issued and signed by both institutions.
