PACK-AGE: Interdisciplinary Packaging Design Project 2013
14 March–17 May 2013 @MediaFactory
PACK-AGE is a Master’s level Aalto course with a holistic focus on packaging design. (5–10 ECTS)
What is future packaging like?
How can packaging be: more fun? more sustainable? a service? a media? more social? more emotional? more informative? multi-sensory? thought provoking? build user experiences? Come and find out and give your own contribution. You get to create, you get to decide.
You will be working in interdisciplinary design teams with real design projects from companies.
The course is interdisciplinary both for teachers and students. Teachers from 4 different schools teach packaging design from various points of views.
The course is based on theme lectures and problem-based-learning in teams. Students get a wide overview of different contemporary packaging design issues and get to practice packaging design in interdisciplinary teams on real packaging projects. Students work in teams of five and every student has their own role in the team. The idea is to use student’s competences, background and prior knowledge as a resource for creative group work. An ideal team has enthusiastic students from many different backgrounds.
The application period is open from December to February. The number of participants is limited to 30.
