Session 4: Architecture & Design session

This course presents you with in-depth knowledge of, and professional skills within, the field of graphic design. The course develops your graphic sensibilities through analysis of existing examples of real-life visual identity, branding, and communication along with project-based studio assignments. You work with physical and digital media, and are challenged to use these media in each of your projects throughout the summer session. Studios are taught vertically, combining students of different levels. Expectations relate to you as an individual student.

One-on-one studio time with my faculty, combined with the various field studies we had, including the studio of Helle Vibeke Jensen, Hebi Inu, and Kinfolk magazine, served as great sources of inspiration not only for my own project, but also as I think about future career paths and internships. On top of solidifying my interest in graphic design, I’ll leave this summer with a second home and deep familiarity with the city of Copenhagen.
