Wendeltreppe in Haus D


Characteristic of the design department is the close interlinking of the degree programmes Interface, Communication and Product Design and European Media Studies, a cooperation project with the University of Potsdam. This networking enables a unique, interdisciplinary educational profile with strong research and practical relevance, which is reflected in numerous projects, exhibitions and cooperations each year. Close cooperation with business and cultural institutions as well as a lively exchange between teachers, students and international universities characterise the learning atmosphere.

Podcast 30 Jahre Fachbereich Design: Folge 1 Typographie

Design;30 - The podcast on 30 years of design at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam

Do selfies belong in some kind of gallery? Why don't you see Comic Sans on cigarette packets? And how important is plastic for design? In five episodes we get to the bottom of these and many other questions and gain interesting insights from former and current design professors at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences into the development of their subjects: typography, product design, communication design, interface design and photography.
