The KISDparcours will take place from 07 to 10 July 2022. The four-day exhibition will be held on all KISD premises and will present over 70 different final projects by this year’s Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates.

The vernissage on Thursday, July 7 at 4:30 p.m. opens the free exhibition to all guests and invites an exchange with a large audience from the regional and supra-regional creative industries, the students, teachers and alumni of KISD, international guests from our university partners, cooperation partners from business, media, culture and art and a design-loving Cologne public. The four-day exhibition will cover the entire KISD premises. Works from a wide variety of design disciplines will be presented – for example, from the fields of product design, typography and layout, interaction or service design.

A tour of the exhibition will give you a detailed insight into the students’ work. The spectrum of content is multi-layered and ranges, among other things, from artificial intelligence to regrowing children’s shoes or typographic early education in primary schools to a body-dynamic everyday working life.

You can find an insight into the final projects on Instagram at @kisdparcours.
