Exploring Design at Dolby

Three young people sit at a table with drawing supplies opposite a Black woman with braids and glasses who wears jeans and a t-shirt. The young person in the middle of the picture is wearing eyewear made from paper cups. The image has a light blue background and is framed in yellow, white, blue, and red shapes. The text in dark blue, on the left, says "Exploring Design at Dolby" with a yellow and blue IP logo towards the lower left corner.

We are always working to expose our students to more opportunities inside the design industry. As part of that, our partnership with Dolby has allowed us to introduce new IP students to different aspects of design. They recently invited us — twelve students and our programs team — to their San Francisco headquarters, where we toured the office, had a Q & A with Dolby designers, and more!

Our newest team members and Program Coordinators here at IP, Alondra Maciel and Essence Spencer, took the time to chat with us about their Dolby Labs experience. Not only was it their first IP field trip — it was also the first time they got to meet our students in person. We got to hear about their day at Dolby Labs, and also their inspiring words for our current and incoming students!
