Graduates today inform themselves about design differently than their predecessors. What channels do you
use in the times of the internet and social media? Are magazines still relevant? But also: How do you
communicate about design, and prepare for it: how to use your means of communication well? Does good
design explain itself without words? Are words still relevant and if not: how does that work in a time where
we seem to translate from an age with focus on tangible objects to one with more storytelling, research and
projects that are strategic or even political and less tangible?
