In October of each year, Dutch Design Week (DDW) takes place in Eindhoven. The biggest design event in Northern Europe presents work and ideas of more than 2500 designers to more than 275,000 visitors from home and abroad.
The MA Graphic Design course at Middesex University explores the ever-changing landscape of communicaton, to build critical understanding and develop insightful design solutions.
We explore story telling through motion and sound design and generate a way-finding system born out of the architecture of a public building.
The Graphic Collective questions the process and value of the design journey, focusing on the source, the interconnections with starting points and the process of making to generation outcomes. We aim to communicate the identity of a space, to create an experience and connect people to places.
We question: How do you know things? Because we can see and feel them? We know senses are a great way to learn. We capture emotional data to create a process to generate images.
In more than hundred locations across the city, DDW organises and facilitates exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates and festivities.
DDW is different from other design events, because it concentrates on the designs of the future. Although during the event every imaginable discipline and aspect of design is on offer, the emphasis is on experiment, innovation and cross-overs.
Exceptional attention each year goes to work and development of young talent.
