Who We Are


O’More College of Design was born out of the vision of Eloise Pitts O’More, a student of design who founded her practice in Middle Tennessee and created the College that bears her name. O’More believed in creating spaces and objects that were well designed, well made, and beautiful.


O’More understood, as we do today, that design has the power to transform how we live and who we are. The College’s education is structured to transform students into designers who have that power and use it wisely.


As a conservatory College of design, O’More College of Design embraces the transformative power in all we do. Join us.
