KISD Graduation 2008: phase08

The graduates are also being celebrated with a gala, a party and a great catalogue to honour them for their acquired competency, companionability, for personality, words and deeds.

As every tradition, this anticipates and depends upon the fact that the students of the sixth semester take on the organisation and execution of these activities, and in this, a productive cycle is achieved, allowing the graduates to reap the fruits of the seeds they have seen before.

This is the community spirit that characterizes KISD, and that, at the same time, is so important for design as a whole: the constructive resignation of egotism and the lone individual.

This spirit was one of the founding principles of the "Kölner Modell", a central goal of this new design education, fostering community, teamwork, openness, and discussion, in order to gather different characters and impulses into a productive whole, and consequently to teach and carry on this kind of synthetic competence.

Even then design has begun to define itself as an interventional and procedural practice that could, from an "in between" - of thoughts, actions or disciplines - build and transform interfaces, and this renew definition was then carries into current curriculum. Today this understanding seems to be consistently current, even forward-looking for design. And for exactly that reason, a KISD education is continually presenting itself in a new way, but always challenging and motivating. Not least, this provides the opportunity to become active in all kinds of interesting fields, and with this to profit from what has been learned.
