Design | HDK - School for Design In recent years there has been a lively debate at HDK concerning the subject matter of design. Discussions concerning design as a subject for academic studies and research, and design as a practical profession are central. Initially this was just a matter for teachers who started the programme, but now also a matter for our students. What design is and what opportunities designers have to affect social development and attitudes are relevant and challenging issues for people who take up this profession in the future. The debate is very much an issue among students and teachers alike. This discussion has resulted in a re-evaluation of the content and goals of design education and a new approach of HDK, which is reflected in the foundations of the current programmes in design. Design: a creative process The practice of design continually changes with society, and the notion of giving form to objects is no longer a sufficient description of what a designer actually does.

Professional Online Publishing: New Media Trends, Communication Skills, Online Marketing - Robin Good's MasterNewMedia Vintage Visual Language: The Story of Isotype by Maria Popova The Transformer: Principles of Making Isotype Charts is the first English-language volume to capture the story of Isotype, an essential foundation for our modern visual language dominated by pictograms in everything from bathroom signage to computer interfaces to GOOD’s acclaimed Transparencies. The real cherry on top is a previously unpublished essay by Marie Neurath, who was very much on par with Otto as Isotype’s co-inventor, written a year before her death in 1986 and telling the story of how she carried on the Isotype legacy after Otto’s death in 1946. Richly illustrated and contextualized with fascinating historical essays, The Transformer is a vital primer for a visual langauge that not only frames much of today’s communication but also speaks to us on a powerful intuitive level.
