Next spring is just becoming more awesome.
Just confirmed I will be running the Communication Design 4 course as part of the Communication Design Program at Berghs School of Communications in February.
I'm very excited to be stepping sideways to my graphic design and craft roots. Oh, and too propel new upcoming designers into – and owning – their future industry.
Last year, I joined this same module as a guest lecturer. And during the course of a week, I briefed a live project brief alongside Grafik Magazine to 25 design students. Grafik then published their favourite results. Together with course leader, Sophia Wood, we pushed the students to their limits, and attempted to help them find their voice in the media.
The brief was simple, students had to pick a news platform, pick a story and then ‘design like they gave a damn’. You can read more information about this project here. And have a look at the Grafik article here.
I also facilitated the Bergh's Advisory Board meeting a couple months ago. Topic? Creative Process. Members included:
Next year, I will be responsible for putting together the whole Communication Design 4 course, and I am really looking forward to all other future collaborations with (according to Cannes Lions) the fourth time running best advertising school in the world.
About the program
Communication Design is a two-year full-time education with a focus on visual communication and graphic design across both traditional and new media. The education prepares students for work as graphic designers or art directors in an editorial context, a design agencies, digital agencies or in a company where graphic design plays a key component. The education unites practical application with theoretical teaching to meet the challenges of contemporary design. A graphic designer must be a complete communicator, able to bring together strategic, critical and creative faculties. The focus of the course is on problem-solving and applying ideas within the graphic design area. A major emphasis is placed on typography as well as on other graphic tools that students develop to a professional level during their education.
This full-time program is in Swedish.
