LOS ANGELES — June 26, 2013 — Otis College of Art and Design’s MFA Graphic Design Program hosted its 3rd annual design symposium, Work and Play: Variations in Design Practice on June 15, 2013. A core component of Otis’ MFA Program, the symposium, in conjunction with Design Week, introduces students to the international design community with a series of workshops and lectures led by outstanding practitioners carefully curated from around the world. This year, designers came from the Netherlands, England, France, and Mexico.

“The power that the faculty and visiting artists hold in shaping the development of student’s lives cannot be under estimated,” said Kali Nikitas, Founding Chair of MFA Graphic Design at Otis. “Visiting artists expand the minds of the students, faculty are inspired by the practice of these visitors, and students from Otis and peer institutions build meaningful relationships that live on in their personal and professional lives.”

Design Week began with each visiting artist presenting a creative brief to Otis MFA Graphic Design candidates, and students from art colleges in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Los Angeles. Teams of students, faculty, and artists participated in workshops throughout the week to realize the outcomes of the creative briefs. The week culminated with a final critique and symposium, Work and Play, providing a venue for the international visiting artists to present their studio philosophy, projects, inspirations, successes, and challenges. Design Week offers students a unique opportunity to collaborate with peers and successful designers from around the world, sharing their working methods in an intimate collegial setting.

Support for the symposium and Design Week came from The Consulate General of the Netherlands.
