Swings

We are surrounded by design, visual communications, objects, in the time when design dictates our values, opinions, habits, belonging to different social groups. Isn’t it important we know what is good design, and how to make one? Through the combination of theoretical lectures, case studies and practical workshops, participants learn about design thinking, methodology, processes and creative skills

The topic of swings guided the participants through a series of research and smaller tasks in order to get better acquainted with the main task. The teams, defining the concepts behind their projects, each different and interesting in their own way, produced four unique products – swings with character. At the following seminar, the authors have designed promotional video material, short films through which they better presented their products.
