Studio Follow-up I - Graphic Design 2 - summer
FaVU-M1PK-LAcad. year: 2019/2020
Students get opportunity to verify their skills in context of local/foreign universities or professional studios. In case of participation in studio lessons, they are leaders of team projects which actively initiate.
The studio statement is the axis of education in all years of study:
Every Wednesday you will be encouraged and led to find your own way of working.
We focus on discovering a role of today’s graphic designer.
We don’t give an easy guidelines “how to do it”.
You will analyze the assignments, take a stand on them and find solutions.
You will experience the pressure of one-day tasks and the enthusiasm of a completed long-term project.
We cooperate with czech and foreign lecturers and foreign students.
We are more moderators than teachers.
