So how can we live better

GRAPHIC DESIGN

So how can we live better

with Nicole Udry

Beyond questions of functionality, comfort and individual or collective well-being, the built environment is able to respond in a stimulating way to societal, energy and environmental challenges. The work space, the living space, the public space, the interior space, the street, are carried by real statements of intent that motivate their forms, following certain principles such as climate transition, densification, ecology and energy transition.... The 2nd year Graphic Design students worked on the production of a communication based on one of these principles (or others) and on the architectural realization which refers to it in order to promote it.

Hyperlab

with Vincent Jacquier, Angelo Benedetto, Ali-Eddine Abdelkhalek, Jean-Vincent Simonet, Clément Rouzaud

In collaboration with the HYPEROUEST music festival, ECAL students were given the opportunity to design a visual installation in the room adjacent to the festival's ephemeral club, located on the Veillon wasteland in Crissier. For this project, 1st-year students worked in groups, mixing Bachelors in Graphic Design, Media & Interaction Design and Photography. Their main objective was to create powerful and creative visual sequences around the central theme of "HYPER". At the same time, second-year students in the Graphic Design option enriched this project by developing the exhibition's visual identity. These interdisciplinary collaborations stimulated exchanges and encouraged visual cohesion, connecting the different ideas and reinforcing the "laboratory" and experimental aspect of the project.

THE SECRET LIFE OF OBJECTS

GRAPHIC DESIGN

THE SECRET LIFE OF OBJECTS

with Adeline Mollard

During the 2nd year Bachelor of Graphic Design visual identity course, students had to choose an object allowing them to perform an action and then bypass its basic function. Following this, the students created a fictitious company or a creator behind this object allowing them to develop a visual identity concept as well as define the recurring elements of the identity in order to establish a modular graphic system that can be applied to a multitude of different media, fixed and animated.

From the proposals imagined by the students, a capsule collection was born, produced in a limited edition.
