The collection consists mainly of files related to Designmatters projects, especially the Los Angeles Earthquake project, which takes up half of the collection. The Administrative Series documents some of the meetings, reports, and fundraising opportunities from the department as well as some course proposals.

The Conferences Series contains programs and notes from mainly the annual DPI/NGO conferences they attended. In addition to participating, sometimes Art Center students designed the program artwork.

Before Designmatters was its own academic concentration, it endorsed courses in various departments. Series 3 contains information on these courses.

The Papers Series contains one file. However, more papers are saved digitally.

The Projects Series is the bulk of the collection.

The files in this series also not a complete record of all of their projects from 2002-2011, but only contain what was transferred to the Archives.
