After running my publication design course twice at RMIT Vietnam, I decided to initiate a publication about publication design, more specifically a showcase of student work from 2017 and 2018 to proof that „Print is not dead“. The book will be published in March 2019.
„Design that Matters“ was the title of a design course I held in the Masters Program of Business Communication at the University of Applied Sciences, Berlin. With Design Thinking techniques we focussed on finding innovative answers to questions raised by current social issues.
Signs of Saigon is documenting and investigating on urban typography in Saigon and beyond. When working at RMIT Vietnam, Saigon South Campus, I had the chance to turn my passion into an academic research project, focussing on the „visual identity of the city“.
Print is not dead – in this project students had the chance to explore publication design as a medium that provides diverse design possibilities, that satisfies human needs and nourishes our senses. A medium that can provide an immersive experience, like no other technology.
From basic programming skills to information architecture, from creating a navigation concept to user experience design, from responsive webdesign to mobile applications.
Starting with exploring basic letterforms, their relationships, space and positioning, readability, construction and deconstruction – this was the base of the typography class I ran at RMIT Vietnam.
