At the wonderful Borups Højskole, a folk high school in Copenhagen, Lower East teaches regularly. This spring at the ‘Next Step’, a pre-qualification class where the students can prepare for and maybe apply to educations such as design schools and architecture schools. In a late February week Jørgen worked with the students in the classic graphic design disciplin “Visual Identity“. 20 students, 7 groups, 7 cases, 5 days and on the last day each group made a quite fantastic presentation. Every group was during the week pushed hard by the strict teacher, each group should come up with a name for their project, a logo, a visual identity, and furthermore they should invent solutions on unfolding the identity in ways that would surprise the rest of the class and the, let’s just say, experienced teacher.
What a fantastic week, big applause to the students, both for the results achieved and for their enthusiasm and their work discipline.
Looking forward to return in April for another period at the school.
