In the 2018-2019 Spring Semester, as is our tradition, Visual Communication Design students are tackling their self-defined design problems in various media. With the objective of producing work at the professional level, worthy of graduation, all of our 16 senior students have carried out rigorous research to develop advanced visual messages, creating a wide range of visual design solutions.
A Kafka story comes alive in a captivating cell animation, while Nietzsche takes a hike on the Swiss Alps in an interactive game narrative. A board game takes us to the dark streets of Istanbul at the beginning of the 20th century to chase murderers, while the joke is on us in a comic strip that mirrors our own jury behavior. These are just a few of the creative solutions that our graduates-to-be bring to their self-authored problems, as our final exhibition is rich with visual stories that cover all the range from stop motion to documentary, from installations to dark graphic novels.
I send my warmest regards to the Class of 2019, our former students, who are now our young colleagues. May the force be with you :)
