aussicht / Designer selfreflect


How do designers perceive their job?

The concept includes on one hand brochures in which interviews with designers and designers, who changed their direction career-wise, are included, as well as with experts, e.g. a broker for the creative business.

On the other hand the concept includes a website with areas such as the impact of technology development or the question which doors the training as a designer opens. Moreover the website contains a discussion-board with topics such as the reconciliation of work and family.

Our goal is it to foster the exchange of experiences and encourage designers to self-reflection about their profession.
