Northeastern University's student-led design studio

We are makers. Creative problem solvers who use design thinking to build groundbreaking experiences for our clients, our team, and the Northeastern community.

Why we do it

To build better solutions through design.

Scout bridges the gap between creative makers and thinkers, making design accessible to students of all disciplines, age groups and experience levels. We promote the design thinking process—critique, testing, iteration and implementation—as an effective way to approach problems in any industry.

To strengthen the design community at Northeastern.

As Northeastern students we are passionate, curious and unafraid speak our minds. We strive to cultivate a design community that will play a critical role in shaping the future of design, technology, and business on a city-wide—even national—scale. Scout gives student designers a voice.

To become better designers

The Scout studio provides an opportunity for Northeastern’s most talented designers to work on real projects, with real clients, and real responsibilities. With this experience and Scout events, workshops, public critiques and mentoring programs, our studio team inspires the next generation of great design at Northeastern.

The Scout Model

Scout is developing a new model for student-led learning based around three key components: peer-to-peer review, interactions with industry professionals and professional experiential learning.

What we provide

Branding & Identity Design

A successful business starts (and ends) with a cohesive, attractive and memorable brand. Scout works with clients to craft visual and experiential identities that share their story, build trust, and appeal to their users.

Web & UX design

Scout builds more than static websites and apps—we craft online identities that attract and engage your target audience. We believe in human-centered design, where every individual's interaction with a company is an opportunity to build trust in the brand.

Campaign strategy & design

Following existing brand guidelines, Scout formulates marketing campaigns that strategically and visually engage your target audience. For this design challenge, our team's interdisciplinary skillset enables us to create an all encompassing solution.
