Service Design - 2024

with Angelo Benedetto, Vincent Jacquier, Pauline Saglio, Calypso Mahieu

During the Service Design course, the 3rd year of the Graphic Design, Photography and Media & Interaction Design bachelors had to create multi-media projects. A collaboration of the Visual Communication department which had as subject the SDGs (*Sustainable Development Goals). The theme was called "For a good cause, make the SDGs a reality" and its objective was to allow students to develop a cause that is close to their hearts. Each project consists of at least two different media, one primary and one secondary. These projects could take any form that the students deemed relevant, be it a website, editions, posters, a video sequence or virtual reality.

Louis Roh – Les chemins perdus

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Louis Roh – Les chemins perdus

with Guy Meldem, Diego Bontognali

Millennia ago, humankind discovered electricity and never stopped exploiting and reinventing it, unconcerned, considering this resource to be infinite. This book, Les Chemins Perdus, opens up new horizons, between dream and fiction, through realistic and poetic notions. What if all the lights went out? It stimulates the imagination and offers readers light, childlike speculation. Interest in illustration, storytelling and printing techniques brings this graphic tale to life. This journey of colours and images appeals to a multi-generational audience, tapping into the potential of children’s books in these tense and confusing times.

Aude Meyer de Stadelhofen – Pearly skin, Summer hit, Vanished by the wind

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Aude Meyer de Stadelhofen – Pearly skin, Summer hit, Vanished by the wind

with Diego Bontognali, Guy Meldem

The beach is a conflicting space. At once romantic and ridiculous, timeless and urgent, a fantasised empty space and a crowded shore, a place of freedom and a border. Pearly Skin, Summer Hit, Vanished by the Wind is a trace, a metaphor for the representations of the beach in the collective imagination today, before its disappearance. The newspaper, divided into three themes – anthropology, climate and migration – juxtaposes dreamlike images, factual news, necessary texts and meaningless advertisings. These different languages emphasise the paradoxical complexity of the place. Using cyanotype, the sheet becomes skin, and the print becomes a tan. The back and forth of the waves marks the pages, strewn with grains of sand and sun cream.

Samantha Trinkler – Legatum Digitalis

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Samantha Trinkler – Legatum Digitalis

by Samantha Trinkler

Our lives have become increasingly digitalised. The expanse of our online activity results in a digital footprint that will live on well after we pass. Despite growing concerns about the data we leave behind, only a small number of people are actively planning their own digital legacy. However, for those who wish to plan ahead, access to information on the process of digital inheritance is scarce, lacking in legal uniformity, and often reduces our entire digital presence to a mere three or four steps. Oftentimes, the law contradicts most platforms’ terms and conditions. This project challenges the lack of sensitivity shown to the people behind these profiles that will be inherited and speculates on future inheritance processes whilst providing a contextual, legal, and statistical overview.

Niki Paltenghi – CSX369

with Gilles Gavillet, Jonathan Hares

“CSX369” features research on the potential of variable fonts in the ASCII technique. A technical quality is identified – that of precise quantification between two instances – and used for colour mixing through typography. Letters are tripled in the same position and each one has a primary colour. Their interspersed variations create secondary, tertiary, etc. hues. The system is implemented with an image processing tool. The research is presented with a specimen and some posters. Prix de l’ECAL

To provide contextual background to the work, students had been reading and discussing an article each day, followed by a daily topic.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

1,15m²

with Sacha Léopold (Syndicat)

During this workshop week, the students worked on the curation, mediation and placement of their own exhibition. The students selected a corpus of works from the iconographic and textual collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, both based in New York. The exhibition space, 1.15m² (refering to the surface area of an F4 poster) is printable, hangable and foldable. It is both a surface but also a base or a volume. The students' results question the means of reproduction and representation of the works in the design of an exhibition.

Clémentine Rousset – Sometimes I feel like I am taken less seriously

by Clémentine Rousset

Sometimes I feel like I am taken less seriously is a series of posters whose aim is to shed light on the various issues related to gender inequality encountered by women in the graphic design field. Through testimonials which have become slogans, the project highlights everyday-life facts, often seen as normal, but which contribute to maintaining a situation where being a female graphic designer can become a challenge. The use of the letterpress to produce these posters allowed me to make my views known and to assert myself as a committed graphic designer.

Communication Machines - Workshop by Niklas Roy

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Communication Machines - Workshop by Niklas Roy

with Niklas Roy

During a one week, we investigated the role of devices and protocols in our communication behaviors in order to come up with new communication devices, beyond the smartphone. We started out with some low-tech experiments, where we tried to transmit messages in morse code by pulling on a rope. A subsequent brainstorming session structured our thoughts and knowledge about communication methods, contents, and devices in general. www.niklasroy.com
