Short experiential learning courses hosted by DK

Call for Designer in Residence 20 Sept. – 20 Oct. 2018 in KL

DESIGN KOMPANY have several projects starting in September 2018 in Helsinki, Finland, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

DK are seeking collaborators who want to learn new ways of approaching design, and making, and are interested in taking a short course with DK. DK started in 2004 in Seattle as an LLC, freelancing and finding new methods, building them into toolkits, and sharing them with clients in small to medium businesses, as well as international NGOs, in the years since.

Do you have skills in layout, producing magazines, or coming up with copy in a pinch? We’re curious to connect with people who have visual skills and are ready to dive into something that will build you as a designer, give you an opportunity to connect with professionals in design and design thinking. Experiential learning programme. Starts 20 Sept. and continues through 20 Oct.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN. You’ll work with DK’s creative directors to outline and strategize your own short project. You’ll work with DK to design milestones, set priorities, find the most creative approaches to solving the problems that pop up, and a new way of looking at the ‘how’ of ‘design doing.’

Call for interest for:

  • Writer (Finnish, English) to collaborate with on Atelier S P A C E || Helsinki, Finland, on 1 Sept.
  • Designer in Residence for an experiential learning programme DK is leading from 20 Sept. to 20 Oct. in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • Conversation salon co-hosts in Kuala Lumpur for May 1-30 real life programmes: Arts & Letter Society, Atelier S P A C E || Kuala Lumpur
