    Material Abecedaries

    The workshop proposes the creation of an analog abecedary to explore the concept of distance understood not only as a separation between initial input and final output but also as a reflection on the distance between gesture and instrument. Working together, participants are guided on a path of creative exploration. Using different techniques and materials, they generate each alphabet letter in an entirely gestural process. Through this practice, the relationship between the imagined project, the creative gesture, the tool used, and the tangible result will be explored. The distance between the movement of the hands and the final shape of the letters becomes a powerful metaphor for examining the distance between our mental process and the concrete result of our creativity and, thus, our perception of the world.

    We say stop. Graphic design to fight violence against women

    Forty posters on display, created by the communication design student community to be actively involved in the fight against gender-based violence, a socially relevant, topical, and urgent issue. Through a call for posters, the young designers had the opportunity to make their voices heard by deploying the tools, methods, and languages of graphic design to counter and prevent the multiple forms of violence acted by men against women.

    DDC Words on pause

    Through three dialogues, we propose an exchange between different generations of communication designers to offer an overview of the multiple professional trajectories of the past two decades and to discuss the transformations of the discipline between theory, training, and practice. This is an opportunity to improve one's knowledge and network and gain inspiration. Initiative by the Course of Studies in Communication Design, Politecnico di Milano
