design school

Most of the "projects" here listed are named after the successive themes i lined out for one of the 4 projectgroups at the department "Visual Communication" at Merz Akademie. All groups are open to undergraduate- and postgraduate students. The group covered on these pages is focussed on editorial design.

First, students have to define sub-theme within the main theme. After this the research starts, along with the editing of texts and images and decisions on form and platform. In recent years, many students surprisingly favored print media over screen media. The projectgroup is scheduled 1 day a week. Each of these themes was running for 1 semester (13 weeks).

The additional titles "Basic typography", "Things for the school" and "Final project" lead to what they are insinuating.
