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.



Design thinking & typography

This is what we did


In this third edition of C.o.c.o.i. China, students search for answers to how typography affects interpretation.
These photographs and works are the results of an exceptional week at Donghua University.
During this 5-day workshop students researched & experimented how typography relates to the environment it is presented in. They collected street typography, interacted with- and interpreted the character of Shanghai, and explored multiple typographic design solutions to express emotion and different tones of voice.

Discover, wonder, interact… Design is alive!


C.o.c.o.i. 第三期所探讨的是文字与设计如何影响传达与理解。本书收录了在这特别的一周里,东华大学的同学们的作品。在为期5天的工作坊中,同学们调研了街头文字,尝试了各种各样文字设计的实验,也记录了文字设计对环境的影响。他们用敏锐的嗅觉发现上海的特点,收录最具有代表性的街头文字,并利用这些收集创作了有趣的作品,去表达自己的情绪或观点。
