Topic outline

  • Welcome to Experiment: Process!

    The Experiment: Process course provides students an opportunity to learn to work with an actual visual identity design project in small teams of two in a structured manner.
    A client is present in the briefing of the project, in the interim presentation, and the final presentation. The student work includes planning the project and conducting background research that will influence the creative work and the concept design. The design phase is iterative and students are supported through lectures and feedback.

    The compulsory LC-1117 Integrated Oral and Written Skills course in English is running parallel with this one on Mondays and Wednesdays in this period. It is focusing on professional communication and presentation skills.

    The same teams that we have created in Experiment: Process course will continue to be teams in this English class and do the assignments together. 

    We are working in hybrid mode. You can join the Zoom from this link below:

    Do not come to class if you are ill or feel any symptoms.

    You will need a laptop with Adobe software installed on this course.

    This link will take you to the virtual mentoring space in where we can have meetings and tutoring sessions with the teams
