Coe Douglas

Position title: Creative Lead


As the Creative Lead for the Master of Science in Design + Innovation (MD+I) program, I collaborate with the team to amplify our students, their work, and the vision of the program. My current interests focus on life-centered design, speculative futures, design fiction, and the ways stories can impact the public imagination. Before joining the MD+I team, I had a long career as a designer, writer, and creative director and have spent the past 5 years at UW-Milwaukee in the Peck School of the Arts where I taught in the Design and Visual Communication program, co-founded the Tending Tomorrow Project and podcast, a Collaboratory at the Center for 21st Century Studies, and serve as the co-chair of Speculative Futures MKE.
