ABOUT THE STUDIO
IDENTITY – COMMUNICATION – SOCIETY describe the field of analysis and action in which communication design is effective in many ways: as a controlling medium on the one hand, which directly exerts its power in terms of identity, communication and society, and on the other as a mediating medium active with reciprocal reference between the three areas.
In this context, STUDIO 007 IDENTITY – COMMUNICATION – SOCIETY represents a dynamic, varied and interdisciplinary space, in which the constructive and also the destructive potential of communication design activities can be analysed and tested, beginning with the identity of the individual within the context of social formations, to brand and corporate identity and all the way to collective identity control. Communication design therefore represents momentous interventional design and action, as well as a science of observation.
IDENTITY – COMMUNICATION – SOCIETY: this polytope of divergent tensions, relationships and correspondence offers a plethora of topic areas for a masters degree, as communication design reveals itself as an open field for experimentation, as an observation post, and as a productive space of societal, communicative and identity-forming relevance.
