Design in the market – a series of free workshops for designers
AFA Katowice and Michał Drożdż host a series of 10 lectures focused on the cooperation of the designer with the business world. The lectures are aimed at Design students but non-AFA participants are also welcome.
What is the role of the designer in a team? What to do when everything goes wrong? Why do some orders seem illogical? How to present oneself to a new client? Employment of freelancing? These are some of the questions Michał Drożdż will answer.
The meetings will take place every two weeks starting from 15 January, until 28 May.
