Otis Design Week
Kali Nikitas, the head of the graphic design department at the Otis College of Art and Design, invited Felix Pfäffli to give two workshops at their Design Week in Los Angeles. His briefing… or rather question was simple: Is it possible to design a poster in a larger group?
Looks that way, doesn’t it? The first group designed a game with simple rules. Something like the snake game you know from old Nokia mobile phones. But with eight snakes. While one group tried to write something with simple black and white tiles, the other group destroyed what they wrote. The second group took the task even more serious and tried to choreograph the design. That is, each person was a part of the design. They created short movies that can be played in an endless loop.
A huge thank you to the students!

And of course to Otis, Swissnex and the Zeugin Design Foundation for supporting this project. I was incredibly happy to be able to realize this exchange. Thank you very much!
