The second edition of the onlab summer school had a striking final outcome. The two weeks workshop, which took place at the DAZ, was a real pleasure and an extraordinary collective experience.

During the winter school 2014 we will explore the formal and conceptual methods of working which help present complex content in a compelling way. The work flow will be similar to last year: the 21 participants will be divided into small groups, which develop the 7 sections and chapters of the publication. Nicolas Bourquin and Thibaud Tissot will closely coach the participants. The result will be a publication that will be exhibited on the last day of the workshop. In addition to that, daily presentations by external professionals will accompany the program.
The onlab winter school is an initiative of the Swiss graphic design studio onlab in Berlin. It was launched in 2011.
In design, the ability to familiarize oneself with new specialist themes in a short period of time is very important. This is why an interdisciplinary team, the integration of diverse competencies, a persistent willingness to continue further training and project-relevant collaboration with experts are all fundamental prerequisites. Only then can a designer develop an understanding of complex social, economic and political issues—without losing sight of its own expertise and focus. The winter school sets out to practice these “fundamentals” in an international, interdiciplinary context.
