Period I - Design, Media, Culture & Innovation
Project I is a 'free' design project. This means you are free to suggest a subject - a design challenge - to your tutors and propose a plan to develop your design for it. Then you have 10 weeks to create the design concept and prototype. Through this project you will demonstrate your capabilities as a designer, both in the methods you deploy in the design process and in the resulting design and prototype.
Two courses run alongside this project: Trends & Forecasting is about just what its title says and about how we, designers, are expected to play a major role in how the world will keep on changing - for the better. In the course Intercultural Innovation, we will discuss and elaborate the notion that design does not obey the borders set by nations. The language of design crosses borders, but it also is culture-bound in many ways.
