At the three design shows in Berlin, Cologne and Frankfurt, students from the Department of Design once again showed their talents. The impressive exhibitions presented outstanding theses as well as projects from the fields of graphic design, illustration, photography, concept art and motion design, 3D animation and many other subjects.
Between isolation and post-pandemic mood, between back-to-normal and in view of the seeming never-ending Corona situation: how it feels to finally get back into an exchange with each other after more than two years of pandemic was the topic of the exhibition "IN-BETWEEN" of HMKW Berlin's Design Department.
The Art Directors Club for Germany (ADC) recently published its annual university ranking, which lists the most successful design universities. HMKW landed a place at the top of the ranking for Berlin.
Two weeks of creativity and hands-on experience in one area of graphic design: last Friday, the design project workshops came to a successful end. The students had the chance to learn new techniques and implement their own ideas during four different project workshops.
New semester, new skills! Starting May 3, twice a week there will be an online and on-site Adobe beginners' course (in English) for all HMKW students and employees starting at 6 pm. Participation is free of charge!
In the winter semester 2021/22, students of the B.A. Graphic Design and Visual Communication had the task of developing a concept for a self-help app in Prof. Rasmus Giesel's course "Interactive Media". After an extensive research phase, in which they created personas, user journeys and prototypes, among other things, they started designing. The final product was a set of click dummies in which users can test the core functions.
From studying design to starting a fashion label: HMKW alumna Nida Temaj has taken a bold step into the future. Together with a friend, she founded FRANK BERLIN - a fashion brand that focuses on mental health issues. We talked with Nida about this exciting project and the highlights of her studies.
As part of a collaboration with ALBA BERLIN, students of the B.A. Graphic Design and Visual Communication developed over 50 design and marketing ideas. The project was focused on the question of which formats and articles could be used to address a young target group and how the club's diverse social activities could be promoted.
Hands on! In the winter semester 2021/22, master students of Prof. Jenny Bergström's Design Thinking course developed innovative concepts with a focus on health in a practical project with Futurice, an international innovation and service design company with Finnish roots. Whether it was a fitness app, a children's book or a communicative card game, all students approached the task with curiosity, an open mind and a lot of energy.
