Overview

Design School is a richly illustrated, unprecedented anthology of over 50 of the most challenging class projects from design schools around the world. The projects range from basic typography to social responsibility. From printed matter to environmental extravaganzas, students are challenged to push the limits of form and content.

How do students learn to solve design problems? How do cultural differences impact the way design is taught? What do design students want from their class assignments? What do design teachers hope to impart? The answers can be found in this impressive compendium of choice projects from the likes of the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland; Fabrica, Bologna Academy of Fine Arts, Italy; Arts Academy of Split, Croatia; School of Visual Arts, New York, United States; Berlin University of the Arts, Germany, and many more.

Design School is an essential resource for teachers seeking uniquely successful projects.
