When did this start?


etsididesign.com blog was founded in February 2015.
In September 2016 we were formalized as an Association and then the collective part was born.

Why did all of this come about?


The association was born from the following student needs:

  • Proactive approach in and out of the University.
  • Multidisciplinarity.
  • Connection with external reality.
  • Collaborative work and personal intellectual development between the students.

How it works?


etsididesign.com is formed by more than 50 industrial engineering students coming mostly from the design area. Every single individual has different goals to fulfil during the academic year. All of them are distributed in different teams known as editors/design mentors, authors, visual team, trendhunters, marketing & web developer.
