Rutgers Creative Expressions Publication

creative x is the design community at Rutgers

A multidisciplinary group of students passionate about elevating design at Rutgers University.

about us

Our goal is to create an inclusive and supportive community where student designers from all majors and backgrounds feel welcome.

We express ourselves through creativity and design while supporting each other throughout our professional careers.


createRU, our first designathon, will take place from April 10-11. Students can collaborate in groups to practice principles in UI/UX, product design and human-centered design to create a digital prototype addressing the prompt: design for your local community. We hope to see you there!

HEX, our digital zine

HEX is an exploration of design topics and a medium for student designers at Rutgers. Our zine committee works on writing, designing, and building new editions.


HEX meetings occur regularly to work on rolling out new zine issues.

workshops are open to everyone and include guest speakers, deep-dives into learning skills and tools, and discussions about career and industry.

community is invaluable to us as designers. In casual get-togethers and in Discord channels, we share feedback and connect over shared passions.
