Success comes in many forms

Welcome to CCAD Means Success. This site is a collection of stories of alumni successes here at Columbus College of Art & Design.

Here, students don’t just learn how to be great artists and designers.

They learn the business and real-world skills they need to succeed after they graduate.

Our alumni go on to work at big-name companies, start their own businesses, show their work in prestigious galleries, open galleries of their own, win awards, rock the freelance life, and change the world.

As we tell the stories of our alumni, we often turn to the CCAD Student Agency — a group of CCAD student photographers, videographers, illustrators and designers paid to make words come to life.

Want us to tell your story? Email us at, fill out this form, or contact Alumni Relations Officer, Katie Butt at 614.222.3233 or
