The MDes Basel addresses students who want to be part of an international program influenced by the tradition of Swiss Graphic Design and our current academic perspective and standards. March 31st, Semester begins: September 17th, Course language: Gaining the ability to conduct a reflective and goal oriented design process and develop an individual vocabulary applicable in the design practice.
Program Continuing to build upon the influential Swiss design tradition set by The Basel School of Design, an emphasis is placed on process throughout the elements which form visual communication. We break these modules into imagery, typography, medium and theory. Process-oriented projects in imagery seek to extend the visual vocabulary of the students. Medium new media , introduces creative coding as a strategy generate compositions and images through programming.
This is combined with an understanding in the volatility of digital media and the visual artifacts found in their failure. Letterform design and typography deal with the formulation, organization and structure of character sets in order to convey information.
With the rise of pictorial messages, a product of digitization, our practice-led research aims to address the discrepincy in studies on the impact of images relative to that of language. The third semester continues this trajectory, while a mini-thesis begins the investigation into a topic of choice which one will be dedicated themselves to in the fourth semester. In our program, class excursions to exhibitions and studio visits play as important a role as discussions and critiques in the classroom.
Every odd year we visit UIC in Chicago for a week of student exchanges and cultural visits. In even years a trip within Europe is planned by students to gain insight of that cities design field. Professional Field The acquisition of such design related practical expertise, with a theoretical basis, opens the gates to a range of employment opportunities in internationally oriented design offices, corporate design agencies, new media agencies, publishing houses, bureaus for exhibition design, architectural firms or starting ones own design studio.
Our MDes program is well suited as a preparation for teaching design at a university level. Apart from the specific professional qualifications in the fields of graphic design and design research, the acquisition of soft skills is an explicit part of the learning outcome.
These include writing and verbal expression skills, research methodology, presentational skills, and social and trans-cultural competence. Fall Workshop Recently, we've kicked off the year with invited faculty and students from another country. Here visual and culinary cultures mix between both groups as the invited faculty organize a variety of workshops. Fasnacht Workshop Every spring during Basel's carnival week, MDes candidates participate in a one week workshop given by an invited designer to match the intensity of music in the streets.
Previous workshops have been given by: Summer Workshops MDes candidates are invited to participate in our international Summer Workshop series following their first year, an event their fellow master students from UIC also participate in. Developing a network with these students is key, as every other year the students of Basel travel to Chicago to further enrich this collaboration.
Summer workshops include weekend field-trips to local design highlights within and across the German and French borders, including: Philipp Stamm Adrian Frutiger — Typefaces. Arts and Design Home to one of the richest cultural centers for the arts within Europe, Basel with only 37 square kilometers, hosts nearly forty museums. At the beginning of each summer, the world's premier international art show for modern and contemporary works, Art Basel , takes the city by surprise. In addition to housing the Swiss Architecture Museum , Basel is both the home base and playground for a handful of world-renowned architects.
