Open Set — Dutch Graphic Design Summer School runs from the 28th of July to the 9th of August in 2014 in Rotterdam and comprises two weeks of workshops and lectures the guidance of noted Dutch and international designers. Apply before June 30.
The school is structured within a studio environment so as to offer participants the opportunity to experiment with different design approaches and share their ideas with colleagues from around the world.
The program caters to young designers, creators, and thinkers fascinated with and impassioned by their profession. With such a cadre of participants we advance our goal of promoting and enhancing the social value of design by creating a platform for debate, knowledge exchange, and experience building.
Open Set 2014 has a rich program consisting in workshops of one or three days by Andy Altmann, Felix Janssens (Total Identity), Jan van Toorn, Jeanne van Heeswijk, Trapped in Suburbia, Annelys de Vet, Karel van der Waarde, Andreas Gysin, Richard Vijgen and Latitudes. The introduction lecture will be held by design critic Max Bruinsma.
The flexibility of the schedule is one of the key points of this years’ edition. You can either apply for the full summer school program of two weeks, or attend to single workshops. The concept is to have several workshops during the summer school. Sometimes workshops are held parallel for smaller groups of participants. If you apply for the summer school you will have to choose a workshop in case there are multiple workshops at the same time.
