- Program Description:
- Integrated Design combines elements of the traditional graphic design with new technology. Whereas the first three semesters are dedicated to the acquisition of basic techniques such as chromatics, figure and object drawing and various image editing techniques, afterwards the students specialize in their field of interest and choose between four disciplines: Photography, Illustration, New Media Design or Communications Design. Project work and supervised co-operations with external business partners prepare the students for their professional future and help to improve social skills such as communication and teamwork. The program is completed by field trips, excursions and free unit studies, which motivate the students to challenge routine thinking processes in favour of alternative creative approaches.
One of the educational principles at the university is a clear focus on interdisciplinary work. By encouraging our students to engage in interdisciplinary projects we hope to improve their social skills, broaden their personal horizon and communicate an understanding for the various forms of creative art. The participation in an interdisciplinary workshop each semester is obligatory for all students. In order to prepare our students for their professional life, the school frequently organizes collaborations with external business partners and art galleries. This is essential not only for networking, but also to improve the students‘ skills in dealing with potential clients. Each semester the hKDM welcomes students from all over the world. Furthermore the school engages frequently in international projects. In July 2012 the hKDM was accepted in the ERASMUS program and is now officially qualified for hosting and international students. Currently we are initiating cooperations with partner universities from different countries.
