Summer Workshops 2021
At Visual Communication Institute / The Basel School of Design
With Summer Workshops 2021 the Visual Communication Institute / The Basel School of Design offers workshops for students, educators, and graphic designers. The workshops afford insight into topical themes in Visual Communication in a study program reflecting the rich tradition of the Basel School of Design. Practical exercises with a high level of professionalism form the core of the workshops focus. Reflection as well as contextual knowledge will be conveyed by way of input sessions, allowing participants’ work to be judged within a contemporary, future-oriented, context relevant to professional practice. The trinational Rhine river valley is a unique cultural environment with easy access to France and Germany, and to sites such as the Vitra Design Museum (G), the Isenheimer Alter (F) or Ronchamp (F). In Basel the Fondation Beyeler, Tinguely Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Schaulager, and the Museum of Contemporary Art are world renown. Besides its museums Basel offers a rich mixture of cultural events.
Every week of the four week long event is another workshop, meaning you can attend four different workshops: Poster Design, lead by Leander Eisenmann, Inquiry by Design lead by Michael Renner, Type Design lead by Philipp Stamm, Algorithmic Design / P5 live lead by Ted Davis and Gregory Vines.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshops will take place under the FHNW Covid-19 protection concept. It will be decided in April 2021 whether the workshop will take place physically on campus in Basel or online in a distant learning format.
