Rietveld Zürich 2018
Rietveld Zürich is an annual 6-weeks program for graduation year students in our department. It is organised by the graphic design department at the Rietveld in collaboration with Zurich based Swiss graphic designers Julia Born and Laurenz Brunner, who structure the program with the help of Sara Arzu (an alumni of the department). As the students continue their studies in another city, they engage in assignments, studio visits, lectures, and excursions that take advantage of Switzerland’s undeniable design history. The 6-weeks program concludes with an exhibition of the students works and a (messy) party. Rietveld Zürich is an extensive exercise in studying together.
For the 2018 edition Carl Herner and Loup Lopez have designed a documentary website that plays with a typical Swiss product – the luxury watch.
