What is the course about?
Design 1o1 “Redux”
Are you ready?
The Design 1o1 saga is finally back with its special “redux” edition!
A special edition in which we go one step beyond! In fact, in this journey, Stefano Mirti and Anne-Sophie Gauvin are handing over more responsibilities to their students. Our former teachers will keep on producing the course contents (and correct the exams together with the course instructors), while the rest (the scary part) will be run by the Design 1o1 community.
“Design 1o1 Redux” is an introduction to design through 101 exercises. A six-month journey divided into 3 courses “online” here on iversity (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), one final exhibition / graduation party and an “offline” workshop for which we will go one step beyond.
Part 1: “Myself” (Nov 2 to Dec 27)
Part 2: “My House” (Jan 04 to Feb 28)
Part 3: “My World” (Feb 29 to Apr 24)
Exhibition / Graduation: In Croatia (Apr 23-24)
Winter camp: In Croatia (Apr 25 to May 1)
Ready for take off?
Here go with the first part of the course: “Myself”.
Design 1o1 Redux Part 1: Myself
Starting from our very own selves, we will collectively observe, translate and communicate many things, in a series of different ways and projects.
As Protagoras once said, “Man is the measure of all things”. It is the main reason we focus on “ourselves” in this first part of Design 1o1 Redux.
To do so, we will work with all kinds of cool apps for phones and tablets (do you have a smartphone or tablet?). We will also share our works with the others on Instagram, using special hashtags.
Indeed, we will explore a new way to learn a new design.
Our various activities will be divided into 8 weeks:
Week 1: My Body
Week 2: My Mind
Week 3: My Time
Week 4: My Diary
Week 5: My Food
Week 6: My Clothes
Week 7: My Exam
Week 8: My Break
What will I learn?
You will learn to develop some basic design attitudes for better understanding the mechanics of today’s world.
One step at a time, you will learn that “design” is foremost a language.
A language shared, talked and discussed by designers from all over the world.
How does the world look through the special lenses of "design"?
Along the way, you will learn about a considerably high number of things. Starting from your very own selves.
In terms of prior knowledge, there is nothing required.
If you have a lot of prior knowledge, it might make the learning process more difficult, but don’t worry, no one is perfect. If we talk about contemporary “#design”, we are all absolute beginners!
However, in terms of technical equipment, this course is easier to follow via a smartphone or tablet. Of course, you can follow us via a desktop computer... but this is not how we intended the whole thing to be.
Between 4 and 7 hours a week.
Everyday, from Monday to Friday, for a total of 6 weeks, you will receive a package via email. Each package will contain a 15-second video to watch (to get you in the proper mood), and a pdf-letter introducing the daily brief (or “homework”) and a series of objects, characters and happenings intertwined with the narrative of the course (to go deeper in the subject at hand).
You will work on your assignment…
Then, once completed, you will upload it to your Instagram account (for the rest of us to see).
Easy as a kiss.
