During a workshop participants make multiple curiosities – small, conceptual projects – centred around a specific (desired) topic. A range of short assignments (pressure-cooker format) help them in questioning the topic, and finding new interpretations.



Systematic Design Thinking


How can Constraints in design challenge interpretation?

This is what we did


During this 5-day workshop students researched & experimented how to let their designs start a dialogue and adapt, react or interact with their environment. By looking at relationships within the design, and relations it can form they made systematic designs with which they’ve challenged themselves and their audience to participate in a dynamic presentation of their findings during the workshop. Last but not least, we developed several dynamic identities for Yangshan Peach Blossom Festival.

Discover, wonder, interact… Design is alive!


C.o.c.o.i. 在为期5天的工作坊中,同学们经过调研和实验,尝试让他们的作品与观众对话,与环境互相影响。通过观察各个元素之间的关系,并联系它,他们尝试了系统设计;通过动态的展示,他们邀请观众参与他们的发现,并与他们的作品互动。我们也非常荣幸地为阳山桃花节设计了动态的品牌形象。
