We're all in this together

A documentation of Rietveld Zürich 2019 edition, by Joyce Chang and Pablo Bardinet Fernandez.

Rietveld Zürich is an annual 6-weeks program for graduation year students in the graphic design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. It is organised by the graphic design department in collaboration with Zürich based Swiss graphic designers Julia Born and Laurenz Brunner, with the assistance of Sara Arzu (Alumni of the department) who structure the program. 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 party. Rietveld Zürich is an extensive exercise in studying together.
