About the employer

Meaningful design, sensory perception, experimentation and collaboration with the business community are some of the words that characterise Design School Kolding. The programme is an international talent workshop for Danish design. We work at eye level, believe in equality and respect diversity. Design School Kolding differs from traditional universities in that the intake is based on talent. We develop and cherish talent, and challenge it by teaching students to reflect on their own process and how to cooperate through projects drawn from a specific user context – often in collaboration with the business community. Design School Kolding builds on the tradition of Danish design, placing focus on design which is meaningful. We believe that innovation comes from relating to history and tradition. The school’s approach is not to provide the answer, but to find the answer together. On the programme, we work with tools, techniques, concepts and methods. We encourage talented students and believe in professional cooperation between individuals. We build on knowledge and research and place emphasis on sensory perception and experimentation – a union of hand and spirit, head and hands. Design School Kolding has university status and provides a framework for a number of recognised researchers in a young field of research as well as an increasing output of PhD projects. At the same time, we know the importance of putting design into practice and therefore prioritise good workshop facilities where students can work with their material 1:1. It is important to the school that its in-house teachers practice what they teach and make use of a large number of guest teachers to ensure inspiration from professional practice.
