Objects communicate with us through the memories and values we associate with them. Any object can become a vessel, holding memories and narratives, waiting to unfold.
This studio aims to break through the stereotypes of the souvenirs industry, explore notions of storytelling in design in a critical environment and the idea of creating meaning through a designed object – A SOUVENIR, as well as engaging with the opportunities and limitations of the industry in the context of mass production.
You will engage with the studio’s topic through a hand-on approach, creating both one of a kind objects and end products following a brief by an external client – Melbourne Design Market. This studio will explore the transition from an individual craft process to working with the industry as an enterprise. You will learn to develop a unique process of design, by working meticulously through the brief, conducting research and creating outcomes, ending up with a real product, ready to continue its life in the world.
