The reality we live in is an immense universe of information that is conveyed by signs, texts, ideograms, and symbols. To move freely in this vast infinity of data we need to code it and decode it constantly. How to design to be understood and to achieve the intended objectives?
This unique 2-year Designing Reading Experience and Interactive Storytelling programme offered by the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice will provide you with all the relevant knowledge, skills, and social competence to discern and define users’ needs. Equipped with these, you will be able to select appropriate tools and then produce purposeful and effective messages. All of them are core components of socially responsible design and a designer’s awareness – both of the environment, community, and his or her self.
As a student in this program, you will acquire several practical skills. You will learn how to solve complex design problems and how to think creatively. What's more, you will find out how to define users’ needs and create products that address them. Yet another skill we want you to master is how to build and coordinate complex projects and thrive in interdisciplinary teams. Your job prospects are ample with such competences.
Once you graduate, you can pursue plenty of design careers. Visual identification systems designer, UX designer, exhibition space designer, or font designer? These are just a few job opportunities that will open up for you. With all the newly gained competences you can engage in the work of interdisciplinary teams, including R&D, in several industries.
