We will be visiting some of Europe’s major creative centres, notable design studios including Pentagram in London; major design exhibitions; design conferences including What Design Can Do in Amsterdam, an international design think tank where students will be taking part in a track of co-creation workshops around a Climate Action Challenge and, TypoBerlin Wanderlust; a visit to the Bauhaus in Dessau including workshops and a night in the original student dorms in the Studio Building, the Bauhaus in Weimar; and the Bauhaus University. The tour can be paired with graphic design courses – History of graphic design (GD102) or select directed studies in typography or critical inquiry (GD498/499).
