Before booking a workshop, please make sure that you can attend for the entire duration and save the dates. When participants do not show up or cancel on a very short notice, other interested parties are denied a chance to participate.


For doctoral candidates and postdocs of all disciplines.


The aim of the workshop is to learn the language of the Visual.

Based on the course leader’s twelve years’ experience as a graphic designer and his subsequent experience in training small printing companies to transform themselves into design consultancies, this course examines the principles of visual communication that will enable primarily verbal communicators to become more effective at expressing their ideas in a compelling visual format
